Shippers may be tempted to reduce transportation costs by negotiating across-the-board rate reductions. That could work in the short term, due to today's loose capacity environment. The market is changing rapidly, however, and within 18 months, those aggressive cost cutters may wish they had invested more in preserving relationships with their best for-hire carriers. You can have both. By bench marking your company's rate history against prevailing market rates on a lane-by-lane basis, you can reduce transportation spending in a way that supports strategic relationships and ensures access to capacity when transportation again becomes a seller's market. Our speakers are Greg Sikes, VP of Products, DAT Solutions and Ben Cubitt, SVP Consulting/Engineering, Transplace. Ben will present the results of the Transplace survey which identifies that carrier response to the ELD mandate varies by fleet size.
