Education
As the supply chain becomes increasingly digital, 3PLs must adapt to provide new technology services and platforms to their customers, and to improve their own operational efficiency. New entrants into the logistics marketplace threaten to further pressure small- and medium-sized 3PLs by changing shipper expectations.
Salespeople are the lifeblood of your business. However, the task of recruiting and interviewing salespeople is one of the greatest challenges for 3PLs. Research findings have discovered that most firms "just wing it."
Register for the CTB Online Study Course beginning on April 2. The course includes new updates and utilizes the 5th edition of the Foundations of Business text book.
