New Joint Research with Procurian: Logistics Summer 2013 Market Analysis and Perspective - Earlier this week, Spend Matters and Procurian announced a new joint category focused research series: Category Watch. We’re excited to release the second research brief in this ongoing series today, Logistics Category Perspective: Strategies and Trends in Trucking and Intermodal (free, registration required). The first brief in our Category Watch series was largely data, price, and forecast driven analysis of the trucking and intermodal market, designed to provide those deep in the logistics trenches with tactical market intelligence and sourcing recommendations.
