Writing The Perfect Supply Chain RFP

Every year, logistics and supply chain leaders across the globe survive the holiday season, and then get right back to work.

An in-depth hindsight process typically marks Q1; shippers look to understand successes and opportunities for improvement, before looking to lower prices and improve their ROI.

Today, we released a paper detailing five questions that help shippers create more impactful RFPs.
