We surveyed the #logistics ecosystem to understand what shippers want out of their suppliers, and who’s to blame for congestion at the ports.
Key recommendations from the report include:
- Stakeholders in drayage are uniquely positioned to implement standardized industry APIs
- Incorporating existing technology to increase transparency in drayage and improve outcomes and fluidity
- Transloading optimizes efficiency and mitigates the amount of time spent driving empty containers
“The regulatory environment and geopolitical climate have combined to delay the start of peak season, but as we get closer to the holidays, we anticipate that volumes will see a prolonged spike that lasts through January 2020,” said Bobby Napiltonia, Chief Revenue Officer for NEXT Trucking. “This research shows what’s possible for the industry as technology continues to influence today’s best practices, and establishes concrete steps that shippers can take immediately to prepare for what will be a frantic end of the year.”
