White Paper: Optimizing Yard Source Management: Insourcing Versus Outsourcing

There are a lot of moving pieces in the logistics industry. It can be difficult for leaders and decision-makers to keep their eyes on every aspect of the business, especially when there is a lack of data, often allowing behind-the-scenes operations, like yard management, to fall through the cracks.

Operational inefficiencies are commonplace in yards, but that does not mean they should be accepted as business costs. The spending – in dollars and minutes – associated with these inefficiencies is too high to ignore. Fortunately, shippers and brokers have options for tackling these issues.

FreightWaves partnered with Lazer Logistics to better understand how shippers and brokers manage their yard operations. The duo surveyed industry leaders about in-house versus outsourcing operations, yard visibility, and the introduction of electric vehicles.
