Transportation Management in the Federal Government
| Best Practices Report: 2012
25
The primary research supporting this report was conducted from August through October 2012.
American Shipper
editors interviewed eight representatives from various federal agencies on transpor-
tation-related challenges and opportunities. Likewise,
American Shipper
interviewed representatives of
10 logistics service providers handling the federal government’s non-military freight transportation
business and four analysts tracking government transportation issues. These in-depth interviews are
used in concert with
American Shipper’s
benchmark research results collected throughout the year,
paying close attention to our annual Transportation Payment Benchmark Study last published in
March 2012.
