    Inland Academy: Building a Domestic Transportation Network the Right Way

    Too often, choices are presented as either-or. Do you use intermodal, or do you use truckload? Do you use full truckload or less-than-truckload? Are you a strategic shipper or a transactional shipper? Do you prefer low costs or high service from your transportation partners? Do you use national or regional trucking companies? In reality, transportation is not an either-or decision. To hit budget targets, shippers use intermodal, truckload, LTL, high-cost carriers, and low-cost carriers based on the receiver. Shippers should use both national and regional carriers. Shippers should have both strategic and transactional carriers in their routing guides. This Inland Academy session will provide practical advice on how shippers can rethink their transportation networks and mix various types of carriers into their networks.
