ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts of shippers associations to cover the needs of small and midsize shippers such as low freight rates, service issues, carrier selection and supply-chain security. The smaller sized shippers require value-added services that can include cargo tracking, and logistics. Due to the complexity of their service offerings, shipper associations have turned to automation or the use of technology service providers who can offer web-based tracking services, as well as electronic advisories.
