The Benefits of Shared Transportation & Supply Chain Networks

As savvy logistics management professionals are painfully aware, the freight transportation market is currently walking a tightrope.

And while many Logistics Management readers have enjoyed this “shippers market,” all reports indicate that this is about to change—and quickly.

In fact, most freight transportation analysts agree that we are about to enter a period of transition that will trigger many of the long-lingering concerns that will indeed tighten capacity and push rates higher.
