Webinar: Freight, Transportation and Logistics Challenges
Previously Recorded Webinar
The shipping industry is experiencing a perfect storm. Every industry is feeling the pain.
The new electronic data log (EDL) regulations, reduced hours for drivers and driver shortages are causing disruptions and increased costs. The practice of logging driving time using paper and pencil are gone. Electronic tracking devices are now mandatory on all trucks, which are recording the time more accurately. In addition, many tasks such as loading/unloading freight and safety checks that have, in the past, not been included in the shift time are now being counted as part of the 10-hour shift.
The result is that shipping companies are being more selective about what they ship and where they go, seeking to maximize the space for freight and shipping lanes. During this session, you’ll learn how to:
• Develop relationships with your freight shippers
• Make your freight more attractive for your shippers
• Rethink what you ship – and how to ship it – to ensure that it gets to where it needs to go on time
