Pinpointing the cause of bottlenecks in your supply chain can be difficult enough— let alone finding their solutions. Transportation teams across every industry and around the world are plagued by the compounding effects of dwell time. And while reducing dwell seems a universal goal, solving this issue is more nuanced due to the many internal and external factors that can impact downtime.
In 2019, the Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) joined forces with FourKites and some of the nation’s leading shippers to take a collaborative, data-driven approach to minimizing dwell. Using a transparent and systematic research methodology, the “Dwell Scorecard”, this coalition identified opportunities for improvement to warehouse operations.
Join Steve Banker, Vice President, Supply Chain Management of ARC Advisory Group, as he leads a discussion with the study’s executive sponsors, Marjorie DePuy, Senior Director, Supply Chain and Sustainability at FMI, Keith Olscamp, Director, Industry Affairs at the Consumer Brand Association, and Priya Rajagopalan, Chief Product Officer at FourKites.
The webinar will cover:
- What root causes lead to extended dwell time
- How to optimize warehouse processes for better performance
- How to evaluate facility performance through data
- What results are possible by reducing dwell times
