• Part 4 of the Perfect Storm Series: The Clean Up After the Perfect Storm... Freight rates have gone up, do your costs have to?

    Catch the replay of the fourth installment of the Perfect Storm Series, hosted by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), NASSTRAC and TranzAct Technologies, Inc.

    This webinar is the fourth installment of the Perfect Storm series, “The Clean up After the Perfect Storm… Freight rates have gone up, do your costs have to?”, and was moderated by Mike Regan,  Chief of Relationship Development at TranzAct Technologies, Inc. and NASSTRAC’s Advocacy Chairman.

    It’s been a rough 2018 for transportation professionals. After years of successfully beating down rates to make their budgets, shippers were faced with the fastest market turnaround to a carrier (sellers) market than any of us have ever seen. While we may have gotten a pass for this year and companies dealt with freight rates increasing as high as 20-30%, this pass won’t go on indefinitely.

    Transportation professionals are still reeling from blown budgets, natural disasters, regulatory issues, and major capacity issues but are still expected to keep the supply chain moving. What can transportation folks do to manage this ongoing storm?

    Our expert panelists will be focused on how companies can respond to the challenges in the transportation industry. The panelist features:

    • Brian Gibson – Wilson Family Professor of SCM, Auburn University
    • John Janson – Director, Global Logistics, SanMar
    • Derek Leathers – President & CEO, Werner Enterprises
    • Josue Munoz – Vice President Global Operations, Colgate Palmolive

    In this webinar replay, they’ll share practical examples of what you can do in 2019 to lower your costs even if we experience the capacity constraints and escalating rates that occurred in 2018.
