Academia only takes a shipper so far. While the previous sessions in this Learning Pod focused on practical insights and specific examples, this session is where the rubber meets the road. You will receive a comprehensive outline and the presenters will walk you through the steps for successful transportation procurement. An online portal will be provided that will allow you to follow the walk-through and fill in the blanks on points that are relevant to your company. You will have the option to “Save” and email your responses to yourselves for use in your procurement practices. We will cover: Business Strategy—establishing the parameters, objectives and stated goals of the project; Data Analysis; Negotiation Strategy; Carrier Pricing Strategy; and Trade Strategy.
