    - by Transplace

    It’s no secret that capacity is a topic that will remain top of mind for both shippers and carriers in the near future. And in honor of Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we’d like to explore what carriers are doing to provide truck drivers with an efficient and quality experience throughout their routes, especially in light of recent capacity and driver shortages. During the 2015 Transplace Shipper Symposium, we spoke with a number of carrier management executives in truckload, less-than-truckload (LTL) and intermodal transportation modes to hear their outlook on planning for capacity.

    How to Move Forward with Reverse Logistics

    - by Transplace

    Everyone has experienced this scenario: a great event is planned in advance, a timeline is set with a predetermined flow of the party, from when guests arrive to the food and music, all the way to their departure at the end of the evening. But as with most events, the host may experience some hiccups along the way. The same goes for many planned and well-organized supply chain processes – they carry with them the threat of unplanned and unintended events, especially when moving product from the point of origin to its final destination. And it is when that shipment does not arrive in its best condition that shippers experience the reverse logistics process.
