Dr. Chris Caplice, DAT Chief Scientist & Executive Director of MIT’s Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL), will be one of the speakers at the event. Dr. Caplice will present on the topic of “Revolution in Transportation Procurement” on Monday, May 8, at 12:05 pm in the Pacific Hall.
“The freight transportation procurement process has undergone a radical transformation in the last few years,” said Dr. Caplice. “The capacity crisis of 2018, coupled with the pandemic, forced the industry to reimagine transportation procurement and management. Companies are starting to fully exploit a portfolio of procurement options ranging from dedicated fleets to contracted for-hire carriers to dynamic or spot capacity. Today’s shippers are becoming more comfortable with embracing pricing variability for some portions of their freight networks.”
During his remarks, Caplice will focus on new strategies and tactics that shippers and logistics companies are taking to build more comprehensive portfolios.
