When Do Lead Time and Volume Impact Truckload Tender Acceptance?

Read the full white paper


Increase lead times, decrease costs

Few companies realize there’s an opportunity to achieve transportation savings—one that requires no capital investment and is relatively easy to implement. It all comes down to time. Lead times to be specific.

This white paper explains which factors can cause a higher rejection of load tenders, and how you can take advantage and save.

We sponsored an MIT research project that focused on the correlation of truckload shipment tender lead time to corridor volumes and volatility, regional sensitivity, and tender rejection rates. To find the answer, the independent MIT researchers analyzed three years of truckload van shipment data from TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson.

In this paper, you’ll discover:

  • The methodology used for research
  • What the key findings tell us about lead times
  • Actionable insights you can start implementing now
