Top Connect Blog Posts of 2015: TMS for SMBs, Millennials, and Shipper Collaboration

Connect Top Blogs 2015

2015 was quite the eventful year at TMC, as well as the industry in general. Technological innovations are developing at a rapid pace, bringing new challenges and opportunities. Throughout the changes, we’ve sought to consistently bring you, our Connect readers, relevant and useful content. Navigating an increasingly complex marketplace can be difficult, and we’re here to help.

As we welcome in the new year, we’re taking a look back at our most popular Connect blog posts. In addition to being the most viewed, our hope is that they also inspired reflection and insight. With that being said, the three most popular posts of 2015 were:

“A Simple, Affordable TMS for Small- and Mid-Sized Shippers”: In July, C.H. Robinson introduced Freightview®, a neutral, cloud-based transportation management system (TMS) technology. While TMS technology development has long been focused on mid- to large- sized shippers, this new platform cuts the time and money small- to mid-sized businesses spend on freight shipping. We sat down with Jason Roberts, managing director at Freightview, to discuss TMS innovations.

“Why Logistics is a Good Fit for Millennials”: Recruiting and retaining high quality talent has become a top priority in the supply chain industry. As the current workforce ages, Millennial talent is increasingly in demand. In this post, we explore the opportunities available to Millennials within the logistics industry, as well as the challenges faced by employers in recruiting this younger workforce.

“Guest Post: Three Pillars of Effective Supply Chain Collaborations, Part 1”: This two-part series, featuring experts from Independent Purchasing Cooperative and Berry Plastics, explores productive collaborations within the supply chain industry. Kelly Allen and Cecilia Symanski offer their insight on what it takes to build successful external relationships. After you read part one, be sure to check out the second post in the series!
