Using 'Return on Sales' Measurement to Guide Purchases

My advice to one of the owners is, “Go ahead, you need the extra help,” to which he thanks me for my expert opinion.

Anne Forristall Luke believes as the USTMA better explains the part it plays in consumer safety, consumers will be more likely to ask what part they need to play to keep travel safe.
