Does Your Boss Speak Logistics? How to Make Your Shipping Budget Make Sense

Session Details

Freight markets can be difficult to navigate, and even harder to explain to someone who doesn’t live and breathe them.

Pricing and capacity are in constant flux, making it difficult to predict both rates and service. But your business absolutely depends on how well you can deliver, and your ability to deliver requires buy-in from the c-suite. 

The better you can explain the market to your boss, the more likely you are to secure the budget you need to set a long-term strategy. 

Get all the tools you need to explain the nature of the trucking market to senior leadership, procurement or operations at your company, or even just to brush up on the fundamentals yourself.
