Price pressures to streamline transportation processes and reduce costs, combined with on-demand flexibility, make the TMS space increasingly competitive. Optimization technology is another hot IT commodity (67 percent), given persistent pressures to streamline logistics operations and squeeze out costs. Shippers are also finding more auditing claims/freight payment solutions to help reconcile cash flows and gather molecular-level spend detail to identify areas for improvement.2 Inbound Logistics • April 2011
