In cement logistics, high truck productivity levels are mission critical in order to maximize customer satisfaction and profit margins. However, measures to increase truck productivity do not necessarily lead to cost savings for the cement producer, since many operate a mixed fleet of their own trucks and hired hauliers or have subcontracted all deliveries to third parties. And the return on investment (ROI) of such measures heavily depends on the way hauliers are paid in day-to-day business.
In this Logistics Tech Short, we're talking about freight rates and haulier payment in cement logistics. Specifically, we’ll take a closer look at how managing them is a continually changing matrix with many variables, including the risk of compromising service levels. This webinar and handouts will help you understand why it's important to review payment schemes when introducing transport optimization measures.
