Transportation Management Not Just About Cost Cutting

Companies repeatedly cite the same goals when it comes to transportation management:
• Improved visibility of transportation information across departments
• Collaboration with carriers and suppliers
• Reduced freight spend
For most companies, however, these ideals are never realized, as transportation initiatives continually get pushed to the back burner. Best-in-class companies understand that effective transportation management doesn't just reduce freight spend. It has a broad affect on overall supply chain performance, and can contribute to reduced inventory carrying costs and improved warehouse productivity.
