Tactical control of transport costs
To meet customer requirements and increasingly complex regulations, shippers need to manage their transport flows with a constant eye on cost and lead times. Indeed, transportation is the number one logistics cost item in many sectors, and in industry in particular, the number two cost item after salaries. What's more, we're currently witnessing a surge in additional costs linked to overbooking and the upturn in demand, which shippers are feeling the full brunt of. More than ever, anticipating and controlling transport costs is becoming a priority for shippers in industry, specialized distribution and e-commerce.
