Getting Asset Smart: Evaluating the Changing Landscape of Moving Freight

Wednesday, 27 September

9:45 am - 10:15 am (CST) / 27/sep/2023 02:45 pm - 27/sep/2023 03:15 pm
The third-party intermediary market has long been divided between non-asset and "asset-light" logistics providers, and there are advantages to both models for logistics companies and shippers. What do shippers need to consider when using asset-based brokers, and where do they best fit? When is it best for a broker to use an owned or leased fleet? If there are advantages, what are the pratfalls to avoid? This panel will explore how we can move from non-asset and asset-light to “asset-right” or even better, “asset smart.”
