CSCMP Twin Cities Roundtable Presents:

How to be the Shipper of Choice in Current Transportation Challenges

Thursday, September 26, 2019 


Event Overview:

An update on all things transportation: sourcing, economic, legislation, regulation- and “How To Be A Strategic Shipper of Choice” from two industry leaders who lobby in Washington DC representing shippers, carriers and 3PL's: Gail Rutkowski, Director of Nasstrac & Meg Duncan, Dir. of Ops w/ Koch Logistics.

Adjusting to the New Normal… How and Why Transportation Has Changed and What to do Now!

When we look at ever increasing customer requirements in transportation, we can no longer be treated as an afterthought.  Freight is impacting your operations and profitability.  Any changes in service level capabilities will impact inventory and procurement models.  How are these decisions impacting our transportation costs?  Does transportation have a seat at the table when determining this impact?  We have all read the many articles about becoming a Shipper of Choice, so we won’t list them all at this presentation, but the bottom line is shippers need to become more strategic vs. transactional in conducting their transportation operations.  Companies who can commit to becoming a strategic shipper will be able to get preferential treatment to mitigate rate increases and have greater access to capacity.  This is the new normal and shippers need to educate themselves to the best way to navigate this uncertain terrain.
