  • In the podcast interview, Brad describes the 4 shipper pain points that he and the JBF team are hearing about from their customers who are large shippers.
  • The ocean shipping delays caused by the pandemic has disrupted supply chains. These disruptions have prompted large shippers and 3PLs to seek ocean and port visibility solutions.
  • Shippers are also looking for more small parcel and last mile solutions and the associated TMS system integrations.
  • As shippers have come to realize big gain in transportation efficiency and effectiveness via technology, they are looking for additional freight tech solutions. Companies like Emerge (freight procurement) and Turvo (TMS and collaboration) have created solutions that are solving new problems for shippers.
  • Some of the largest shippers were early adopters of freight technology like TMS. Many of these companies have been using TMS for long time, which mean they are using on-premise systems. As time goes on, TMS providers are trying to migrate these large shippers to the cloud, but given their huge shipping volumes and technology investments, the process is difficult, costly, and time-consuming.
  • JBF Consulting works with shippers to solve the problems described above. Since JBF only works on logistics and supply chain technology, they have the expertise and experience to solve even the most difficult challenges.
