Trends and Innovations in Transportation Procurement

10/22/2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Procurement has long been an ad-hoc, relationship-based process in the freight and transportation industry. As such, and despite the technology that is available today, it often still takes place in a silo outside of a company’s overall strategy. And while the industry as a whole seems to have a broader understanding of how technology and data can inform decision making, procurement remains a largely manual and decentralized process.

With this gap between the understanding of how procurement should function and the reality of largely relationship-based decision making, how can companies transition to allow technology and data to inform and shape their procurement strategies?

To answer this question, share current trends and innovations in procurement, and discuss how shippers can prepare for 2020, FreightWaves is partnering with Uber Freight to present a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, October 22 at 2pm ET. During this session, we will explore:

• The importance of using data and technology to drive procurement strategies

• Why communication is critical across all parties involved in decision making

• How the right partnerships can take procurement strategies to the next level

• How to set expectations and plan for a successful year in 2020

This webinar will feature insights from Chris Caplice, Senior Research Scientist at MIT and Executive Director for the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics, as well as Bill Driegert, Head of Operations for Uber Freight.
