    Highlights of Shipper Symposium 2016: Part 1

    - by Transplace

    We kicked off the 14th annual Shipper Symposium in sunny San Antonio this week and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring together industry luminaries, keynote speakers, partners, carriers and customers!

    Tom Sanderson, CEO of Transplace, officially welcomed attendees and introduced the evening’s keynote speaker, Jim Morris, a former MLB baseball player and the subject of the movie The Rookie. Focusing on the importance of choices, Morris said: “You make up your own mind about what you want to be and what you want to do. It’s the choices that we make that make us who we are.” Morris shared with the audience how learning to follow his dreams, telling the truth no matter what and “walking the walk” has helped him throughout his life, and drove him to finally realize his dream of pitching in the major leagues. His final takeaway for attendees was simple: “If you don’t chase your own dreams, that’s your fault.”

    A Holistic Roadmap for Uncovering Your Transportation Network Savings

    - by Transplace

    Shippers are continuously looking for ways to reduce their transportation costs. Yet, transportation doesn’t lack when it comes to complexity with its many moving parts. Add in the need for smart resources, strong industry experience and quality skills needed to ensure that transportation networks are optimized, and inefficiencies can easily creep in. By looking holistically at a transportation network across an enterprise, shippers may find that unexplored areas can bring about unexpected savings. Likewise, inefficiencies through common practices may also be brought to light and therefore given the opportunity to be corrected and improved.
