Over the past year, a handful of less-than-truckload carriers have announced programs to introduce density-based pricing in response to a large contingent of shippers who have long demonstrated an interest. The density-based model takes a simple approach, where rates are set depending on tiers of a shipment’s density. While the LTL industry is looking hard at a migration to density-based pricing, a number of shippers have voiced reluctance, preferring to instead embrace, for now, what they know best— the National Motor Freight Traffic Classification model.
With misinformation flooding the market and fueling fears among shippers, supply chain professionals in the know are speaking out.
Sponsored by SMC³ and Jump Start 2015, this 60-minute webinar will address:
1. The factors driving the move to density-based pricing.
2. How would density-based pricing change LTL?
3. Advantages of density-based pricing.
4. Advantages of the NMFC system.
In this webcast, we’ll provide information and answer questions to help you determine whether density-based pricing or classification is the better option for your company.
The final 15 minutes will be reserved for a live Q&A with the audience.
Join our panel of representatives from across the U.S. supply chain as they take on the task of eliminating the misinformation and addressing the future of density-based pricing and NMFC.
