Freight procurement has never been more challenging.

Ongoing market uncertainties, economic and political instability, and an ongoing focus on sustainability and decarbonization all results in procurement managers needing to consider more factors than ever before.

Together with expert speakers we’ll look at how to:

  • Use best-in-class technology to optimize sourcing strategies
  • Save money even while prices are going up
  • Improve shipper and carrier relationships
  • Leverage the power of the community
  • Interpret market data to make smart decisions for the future
