With today's looming capacity crunch,
many supply chains are looking for assurance of capacity to scale
their supply chains. Although many expect rate increases or
compromised service levels, Hillshire Brands is working with their
carriers to help scale operations. As a leader in focused food
solutions for the retail and foodservice market, re-engineering
carrier relationship management has unlocked true supply chain
scalability for Hillshire Brands.
This 60-minute live webinar will directly address the capacity crunch and how companies are battling alongside carriers, rather than against them. Attendees will leave with actionable guidance on how companies can benefit from the expertise of their supply chain partners to scale carrier relationships into long term value.
