    Shippers Sound Off on Technology

    Shippers face a technology investment challenge that virtually no other entity in global logistics does. That is, a global importer or exporter is balancing its technology needs across a huge list of needs that spans every department in the company. An investment in logistics technology means a shipper has less to invest in sales, marketing, human resources, finance, customer service, and on and on. Some investments into logistics can impact multiple departments, but the problem for logistics teams is that global freight transportation wasn’t often seen as the highest priority, especially as freight rates stayed at low levels on a historical basis. That, of course, changed during the pandemic, when supply chain as a whole received unprecedented attention. The question going forward is whether logistics teams can channel that better understanding of technology into sustained technology investment. In this session, a transportation technology vendor and two of its shipper customers will discuss what systems, features, and tools matter most, and how access to investment for technology has changed during the pandemic.
