Cerasis Inc. announces the educational webinar titled "Best Practices in Effective LTL Freight Management," which you can register for here on March 12, 2014 at 10 AM CST.
"95% of the business of Cerasis, a third party logistics company, is done through Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipments. In fact, our transportation management software, the Cerasis Rater, handled 300,000 LTL freight shipments in 2013, and we audited every single one of them," said Audra Wiste, Customer Services Manager. "So it is of special interest for us to help educate shippers on all modes of possible ways to ship their freight in order for shippers to make the best decisions for their business."
How BIG Is the World Of LTL Freight Shipping and How Do Shippers with 3PLs Faire?
The amount of LTL freight moved under blanket-pricing programs by brokers has grown from $575 million in 2007 to $2.5 billion in 2012, according to data compiled by CarrierDirect LLC, a Chicago-based firm that specializes in helping freight carriers find freight from brokers and 3PLs. The overall size of the LTL market during the same time period actually shrank from an estimated $36 billion in 2007 to $33 billion in 2012, company officials said.
This means that an increasing use of services from savvy, niche logistics providers, such as Cerasis, who focus on LTL freight management, is a competitive edge for many shippers. In fact, according to the recent 2013 17th Annual Third Party Logistics Study, which identifies trends and explores how both 3PLs and shippers are using these relationships to improve and enhance their businesses and supply chains:
“Both shippers (86%) and 3PLs (94%) largely view their relationships as successful, with shippers posting some impressive results from outsourcing: Just over half (56%) say their use of 3PLs has led to year-over-year incremental benefits. They also report significant savings from logistics cost reductions (15%) inventory cost reductions (8%) and logistics fixed asset reductions (26%). Shippers are more satisfied than 3PLs (71% to 63%) with the openness, transparency and good communication in their relationship, and 67% of shipper respondents judge their 3PLs as sufficiently agile and flexible.”
This success is seen from many Cerasis customers, as the third party logistics provider focuses on not only servicing shippers in LTL freight management, but also proactively educating shippers on the best practices related to LTL freight shipping.
