CMUs: Certified CITT members earn 5 CMUs for their first viewing of this webinar (live or recorded). 

An effective contract is one that supports a win/win for all parties involved, rather than existing to benefit one party over the other. Contracts are a challenge, but also an opportunity to create fair and mutually beneficial agreements, with both protections and incentives. This webinar, which will be relevant to both service providers and purchasers of services, will identify best practices for the construction and acceptance of agreements, and will discuss several key clauses and their development.

Clauses this webinar will cover include:

  • Term, termination and extension conditions
  • Price adjustment models
  • Service level agreements that achieve goals
  • Payment incentives
  • Sustainable purchasing

Negotiation of clauses can often be overlooked by both the supplier and the purchaser, so attendance to this webinar is recommended to anyone who is or may be involved in transportation negotiations on any level.
