Impact of Lead Time on Truckload Transportation Rates

Erik Caldwell & Bryan Fisher Research Fest 2008 This project developed a model to quantify the impact of business policy decisions, such as tender lead time, on truckload transportation costs. This model demonstrated that business policies have a substantial impact on companies' overall transportation spend and these policies can be quickly modified to reduce cost with little risk or capital investment. 21-May-08, Session 2 (2:30-3:45)

Excellent Presentation. I particularly liked the Idea of having your fleet handle your rejected/expensive loads while common carrier handles the regualar loads. I also like the idea of capturing and using load rejection data and sharing it with your carriers for mutual solutions.
