Take a more strategic approach for flexible capacity

It's never too late to start taking a more strategic approach to securing truckload capacity—and develop a mutually beneficial relationship between you and your transportation providers. An ongoing effort to seek alignment between your supply chain needs and your transportation provider's network is a strategy that can show benefits to both parties, and can result in better rates and exceptional service levels over time.

Having trouble getting the equipment you need? Paying higher transportation rates? If you can answer "yes" to these questions, that might be the problem.

Q: Do your conversations with transportation providers focus only on getting the lowest rates?

Q: Do you frequently switch back and forth between transportation providers based on price?

Q: Do you ask all your transportation providers to commit to the same low rates, without regard for what is happening in the market or their business?

Q: Do you ignore transportation provider complaints about issues like long loading and unloading times, or freight that was difficult to handle?

It might be time to take a more strategic approach to truckload procurement, which can help you improve relationships with transportation providers and better manage your spending over time.
