Shipper enhancement for a new truckload market is more important than ever before, and every company needs a supply chain carrier sourcing strategy as the costs of freight to continue to rise. Driver shortages, higher driver pay, higher demand for trucks and stiff competition from larger shippers all contribute to risings costs. With the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, multistop cargo is less efficient, and longer payment terms are also increasing costs.
Even with this new reality, there are ways you can continue to serve customers while also keeping costs manageable through improved efficiency:
