World-Watching: Shipping Problems Webinar

Solving SMB Shipping Problems with Technology — June 14th @ 2 PM EDT

[from FreightWaves]

The supply chain challenges we hear about today likely bear little resemblance to those we envisioned at the beginning of 2020. Ongoing disruption to the global supply chain has accelerated and heightened the need to focus on risk mitigation — or face even more critical concerns.

To uncover ways small and midsized (SMB) organizations can overcome tech adoption challenges and continue to grow, FreightWaves has partnered with MyCarrier for a one-hour webinar at 2 PM EDT on Tuesday, June 14.

In this webinar, learn how SMB organizations can alleviate the pressure of industry volatility by utilizing technology to:

  1. Reduce shipping costs
  2. Maintain customer demands
  3. Source reliable capacity
  4. Ensure timely pick ups 
  5. Manage inventory

Register for the webinar.
