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
- What are the most common payment schemes used in cement logistics?
- How do you compare different payment schemes and identify those that achieve operational excellence?
- What software tools and practical techniques are available to optimize transport planning and to manage haulier relationships?
- What is the best way to address service challenges?
Logistics Tech Shorts - a series of 20-minute webinars on optimization technology in the logistics industry. Designed to stimulate and challenge your thinking on how technology impacts logistics in the modern age, Logistic Tech Shorts deliver a blend of big picture thinking with practical ideas you can apply today.
