Abstract There has been consensus that logistics as well as supply chain management is a vital research field, yet with few literature reviews on this topic. This paper sets out to propose some hot issues in the current research, through a review of related literature from the perspective of operations management. In addition, we generate some insights and future research directions in this field.
Now, it is time to envision how to apply the Internet of Things IoT to improve supply chains.
Provides a framework companies can use to envision how to apply the IoT to their supply chains Applies the IoT framework to semiconductor, automotive, and ecommerce supply chain improvements Explains the capabilities organizations must have to implement IoT technologies Multi-Stop Trucking: This white paper explores: Factors that increase the price for multi-stop truckloads Factors that lower the price for multi-stop truckloads Strategies you can employ to make multi-stop freight more attractive to carriers and better control your costs Do Higher Truckload Rates Bring Better Carrier Performance?
Does paying higher rates bring better carrier service?
Robinson and TMC, a division of C. Robinson, to find out. This white paper provides highlights of the findings: Whether paying more results in better on time pickup or delivery percentages. Whether there is a correlation between acceptance ratios and carrier pricing in a lane.
Whether there is any correlation between on time pickup and on time delivery. Robinson collaborated to examine how the Panama Canal Expansion in will impact logistics.
Anecdotal evidence and some qualitative research suggests that "favored shippers"—companies for which carriers prefer to haul freight—obtain better pricing and service. In this paper, Iowa State University researchers explain: How they sought to understand the voice of U.
Robinson, and a national LTL carrier to examine the issue. Why existing methodologies for measuring carbon emissions for LTL shipments are highly inaccurate How a detailed model and a simplified model for calculating emissions performed How an easy-to-use formula derived from the simplified model can help companies measure LTL carbon emissions with greater accuracy Stale Rates Research: Benefits of Frequent Transportation Bids Do regular procurement events help control transportation costs, or are frequent rebids a waste of time?
This white paper answers the question, based on the results of Iowa State University research: How carriers adjust and honor contract rates between procurement events Why regular procurement events lower costs How procurement events promote strategic relationships with service providers Freight Services 4 Trends to Watch: North American Surface Transportation This report looks at truck transportation between Canada, the United States, and Mexico and how four trends seem likely to impact shippers and carriers in the current environment.
Industries are taking advantage of nearshoring in Mexico Canada's investment in transportation infrastructure is allowing the country to more easily access Asian markets, often bypassing the United States Ecommerce is bringing new opportunities and challenges to logistics suppliers Digitization in the freight marketplace enables smaller carriers to obtain easier access to shipments Assessing the 5 Biggest LTL Savings Opportunities You could be missing potential savings on less than truckload LTL service, but where should you look for the best opportunities?
This white paper highlights: What shipping data you will need to assess LTL shipments How to understand the key shipping characteristics that can identify the best cost reduction opportunities Five areas where LTL savings are commonly found Inbound Transportation: Companies that take control of inbound freight management have discovered efficiencies, but that is far from the only benefit.
Discover the 10 best practices for inbound supply chains that can also help: How to Talk Transportation Budgets to Non-transportation Professionals Open discussions with people in your organization about how potential business decisions impact the transportation budget—and how the business can decide whether the tradeoff is worth it—before the decisions are made.
