The RFP isn’t broken. Your process is! In this webinar moderated by Marney Edwards of Loadsmart, industry experts Rush Feldhacker of Metafora and Dennis Heppner of JBF Consulting discuss why the annual RFP is going extinct.
“Few shippers, tech vendors, or implementation partners have all the tools and skills to build an addition to your “logistics house.”
“The annual carrier RFP event may not be dead yet, but the old way of securing rates and capacity is certainly going the way of the buggy whip.”
“Despite superb planning and execution of the implementation, there are some ‘typical’ attitudes and issues that shippers have to deal with post-implementation.”
“Identifying current trends and issues is a bit like nailing jello to the wall.”
“Return on Investment is a key element of the business case for TMS, or any technology, projects.”
“If we assume the project is well understood and prioritized beyond our primary sponsor, we are likely in for a surprise.”
“A solid foundation, whether building a house or implementing logistics technology, is critical to success.”
“As a shipper, if you are not utilizing technology to manage transportation functions, you are behind the curve.”
