In November and December of 2018, TIA, through its Shipper Committee (compromised of industry leading 3PLs) and Shipper Council (comprised of industry leading logistics and supply-chain management professionals), developed and released a survey that assessed the key factors that shippers, motor carriers and 3PLs look for in a business relationship. There were more than 100 responses to the survey including responses from all three segments of the industry. From these survey results, a case study was developed that identifies what shippers, motor carriers and 3PLs are looking for in order to achieve a Win-Win-Win Business Relationship. Our panel, which consists of shippers, motor carriers, and 3PLs, will walk you through the key findings of the case study.
