Transportation in the Post-COVID World
Date & Time
Thursday, April 27, 2023, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Session Type
Breakout Session
Operations Strategy

Just like our sessions on retaining warehouse employees, hiring a transportation provider who can reliably deliver product – on time – is more challenging now than at any time within the last decade.  From port congestion, to lack of shipping containers, to driver shortages, fuel surcharges, etc., Covid has made managing transportation a simple act of survival.  This session will review some of the challenges our participating OEMs have been facing over the past year and the plans they implemented to address these challenges.  This session will include both inbound and outbound-related topics, such as:
•    Network changes to address port congestion
•    Mode changes to address carrier capacity
•    Strategies to reduce reliance on shipping containers
•    Outbound bypass strategies to minimize miles, touches, and cost
•    Pricing/negotiation tactics to address rising transportation cost
