NEW! Summer 2013 - Logistics Category Perspective: Strategies and Trends in Trucking and Intermodal
This second paper in the Procurian and Spend Matters Category Watch includes sourcing strategies in the logistics category, focused specifically on trucking and intermodal freight transport.
Logistics is one of the larger spend areas for most organizations, for some it represents as much as 5% of cost of goods sold (COGS). Despite the significant bottom-line impact that effective management can bring, there is tremendous opportunity to drive savings and other desired outcomes across logistics category segments. A number of overall strategies are highlighted in this research, and includes trends and observations surrounding the logistics marketplace that are top-of-mind for logistics sourcing professionals today.
This research touches on subjects ranging from specific logistics strategies to how to handle data and analytics in the logistics area, and closes with a few “sound bites” for the CPO - how to drive the most savings, capitalize on your talent, and meet integral organizational goals.
