Here is a quick glimpse of what is currently being discussed: Is Logistics Education Necessary? Is there value in earning one of the many certifications offered in the logistics field? If you have a certificate from ISM, AST&L, DNA, has it helped your career? If you hire, does it help the candidate?
Where\'s the truck? Academics, consultants, and forecasters say the capacity crunch in truckload isn\'t improving. Meanwhile, carriers are buying trucks at a pace that exceeds the replacement rate. Is the crunch real or is this just an excuse for carriers to \"cherry-pick\" freight and push rate increases?
U.S. Logistics Infrastructure Gridlock The challenges of your June article, \"Time is not on our side,\" are right on target because our national economy, as well as our national defense, is crashing and burning now because our supply of transportation services is unable to effectively meet demand. You cite a probably 30% increase of inbound containers by 2009, and the doubling in 10 years. If anything, your numbers may be conservative; America will experience more and more logistics grid lock.
The Logistics Today Forums are easy to use. You can view any of the postings without registration. You must register to post a new thread or reply, but registration is easy and free!
