In business for nearly two decades, third party logistics company, Thomasholmes, with a focus on transportation management through a transportation management system and managed transportation services, outlines the most important transportation metrics to track which will allow shippers to make better business decisions and improve performance in their latest paper entitled, “The Transportation Metrics that Matter the Most for Shippers to Track to Improve Transportation Performance.”
When the “best job possible” doesn’t feel like you are cutting it anymore, shippers can turn to data as a way to see how a shipper’s tactics and shipping activities create trends. Once a shipper either tracks this data themselves or a 3PL provides key transportation metrics the shipper can then implement and understand transportation best practices. Once understood, the shipper, along with the 3PL, are able to create new strategies and tactics for the logistics side of the business which will drive value and savings to the bottom line.
This white paper will empower shippers with the knowledge around transportation metrics by providing:
- The a complete run down of the correct transportation metrics to track and understand
- A step by step guide on how to use data in general, but more specifically how to use transportation metrics data to improve performance and make better business decisions around transportation
- A “best practices” guide to keep in mind when applying the analysis of transportation metrics data
