Challenges and Opportunities in Inbound Transportation Management

Quetica

This educational webinar examines the challenges, opportunities and strategies to effectively implement a managed inbound transportation program.Driven by initiatives in transportation departments to control and optimize transportation costs, U.S. organizations have historically focused on managing and optimizing outbound transportation. With the development of new industry best practices and technological advancements embedded in Transportation Management Systems (TMS) and freight payment systems, outbound transportation has become much more efficient in the past decade.However, inbound management still faces many challenges in cost management and operational control, mainly because organizations still align inbound transportation to purchasing departments and choose to outsource inbound management to their suppliers due to a lack of internal tools and expertise to manage it effectively. There are significant opportunities to drive greater efficiencies on inbound transportation, similar to those that have been achieved for outbound.
