In the private sector size and scale often provides the opportunity to create freight transportation savings through optimization. American Shipper's
research shows that the federal sector is no different. This report will discuss the many challenges that federal agencies face in managing both inbound and outbound transportation. Using those challenges as a backdrop we will explore the benefits - and savings opportunities - related to adopting best practices observed in the private sector.
In specific, this report takes an up-close look at the freight payment processes prevalent among civilian federal agencies. Government auditing regulations mandate these agencies follow the same guidelines on a critical piece of the transportation management function. On the surface this single, common trait may seem insignificant, but our research demonstrates this critical element can be leveraged to integrate disparate operations for mutual benefit, both in terms of operational effectiveness and efficiency.
