DALLAS, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FreightIQ, a solution within HaulSuite, a leader in LTL optimization solutions, is hosting a webinar, "Pricing Smarter: The Changing of the LTL Pricing Landscape." The free webinar takes place on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at 12:00 PM EST. Attendees will hear an informative discussion about the changing LTL pricing landscape with insights from the perspectives of a carrier, shipper, and 3PL provider.
“In LTL, pricing can drive or destroy a carrier’s operating margins,” says Lance Healy, VP of LTL Innovations at HaulSuite. “Finding an accurate price that everyone can agree on can be a real challenge, yet more and more carriers are moving away from static tariffs to dynamic pricing models. New technologies are becoming available to help carriers make more accurate and faster pricing decisions.”
Distinguished supply chain professionals will lead the session to discuss the migration to more dynamic pricing, focusing on all parties' concerns, opportunities, and challenges. Is the market ready for more and more shipments to be priced dynamically? A discussion among panelists will center on if and why dynamic pricing changes are necessary and what is driving the change.
