Contingency planning for FTL shipping traditionally has been limited to a yearly RFP that results in the selection of primary, secondary, and backup carriers, but the recent pandemic has shown that this approach is no longer effective and a more agile approach is necessary.
RFPs can be a good way to get business from shippers, but carriers must be careful and check the red flags, such as lack of information from the shipper, a "cookie-cutter" approach, slow response time, and unprofessional behavior, to avoid wasting time and money on RFPs that are not worth pursuing.
