It looks as if we did not learn from history and the serious trucking capacity issues we confronted in 2005 are about to recur.

“In 2005, Pete Stiles wrote the definitive white paper delineating the best practices a company should employ to work closely with their carriers to avoid capacity issues resulting from the then-current regulatory and environmental changes. Now in 2011, regulatory and environmental changes are converging again to threaten serious capacity issues. Mr. Stiles has updated the best practice list and written a new paper that every shipper will want to read closely and consider as they attempt to streamline their logistics operations to meet these challenges.”
-Michael Levans, Group Editorial Director, Supply Chain Group

Available today, “Transportation’s Perfect Storm - the Sequel!” re-examines, and enhances, the list of best practices shippers can implement not only to avoid capacity shortages, but also to lower transportation costs.

MercuryGate, a leading provider of Transportation Management Software, has sponsored this engaging new White Paper. From it, you will learn:

  • The economic and regulatory conditions that could lead to serious capacity shortages in 2011
  • The operational, spend, and information management best practices that shippers should consider implementing to mitigate capacity shortages
  • The enabling technology that can be implemented quickly and affordably to facilitate best practice implementation

Shippers can save 15-20% of their annual Freight Bill by implementing best practices in Transportation, supported by standard workflow processes and enabling technology—but two-thirds of the shipper community has not yet done so!
