Too often, shippers spend millions to implement a transportation management system (TMS) only to find they
need a staff of highly trained people to manage it, says
Shannon Vaillancourt on our “Logistics Problem Solving”
blog. The TMS may even require frequent manual intervention—exactly what automation is supposed to eliminate. Luckily, Vaillancourt has advice on how to avoid the
problem. Read “Does your TMS allow you to benefit from
automation?” at http://blogs.dcvelocity.com/logistics_
; Bridging the skills gap. Boomers are retiring every day,
and that’s creating a shortage of skilled workers for the
material handling industry. MHI’s Angela Jenkins recently spoke with DC VELOCITY about the steps the organization is taking to remedy skill deficiencies and to promote
industry careers to young people. Watch “Carving career
paths for students and professionals” at www.dcvelocity.
