ALAMEDA, CA – PINC Solutions launched today a thought provoking webcast featuring Gartner analyst and VP of supply chain research, Dwight Klappich and Chief Technology Officer and founder of PINC Solutions, Dr. Aleks Gollu. The webcast is called Transportation Myopia and is the second webcast of a series focused on supply chain visibility.
According to independent research, an average trailer shipment takes three days to move from one facility to the next with only eight hours on the road. Simply put, for 80% of the shipment time, the trailer is idling at a distribution center or manufacturing plant. This idle time typically results from trailer status delays and information inaccuracies along the supply chain. Gartner lead analyst, Dwight Klappich, and PINC’s CTO, Dr. Aleks Gollu, will discuss how taking a wider view of the transportation function can help shippers and trading partners unbundle hidden savings and inefficiencies.
