Innovative Consolidation Techniques for Improved Transportation Efficiency

DFM Commentary:

MIT’s Supply Chain Research Expo has a number of interesting transportation projects including one supported by GlobalTranz. It focuses on consolidation of LTL loads and better utilization of the carrier capacity. Data sharing has significant benefits to shipper, broker, carrier, and the environment. DFM Data Corp. while focused initially on data hygiene and broker productivity, looks forward to the expansion of the anonymized data sharing agreed to by its DFM members and the potential for improved outcomes of efficiency and carbon reduction. #digitalfreightmatching #sustainability
