Distributors may be able to achieve certain key benefits by outsourcing their transportation-management responsibilities. "Leaders in logistics management streamline everything associated with transportation, including cost," said Carrie Gendrau of Outsource Freight Management. "They have relationships with LTL carriers and greater buying power than a distributor." Outsourcing may be an especially attractive option at the moment, because prices are competitive and service levels have risen, writes D. Douglas Graham.
