Unfortunately, transportation purchasing, or the shipping department, is often the "invisible hero" working in the background to make sure everything runs smoothly. It is often overlooked until something goes wrong, at which point it is suddenly thrust into the spotlight. But we shouldn't be fooled by its underdog status. Without an organized shipping department, companies could not deliver their products effectively and customers would be dissatisfied.

Transportation purchasing is often an underappreciated function within companies. Many people think it's just about negotiating freight contracts or planning transportation routes. But that's far from all a shipping department needs to do. In fact, it is an important part of supply chain management and plays a crucial role in ensuring an efficient and smooth supply chain. In addition, trustworthy and sustainable cooperation with freight forwarding and transport service providers is an important factor in meeting delivery deadlines with customers.
