As transportation networks become larger, more layered and complex than ever, navigating a range of shifting regulations and challenging economic climates is increasingly difficult for logistics service providers.
From 2PLs’ delivery-focused services spectrum all the way through to emerging supply chain network- focused 5PLs, providers face a variety of environmental, operational and service-oriented challenges.
The frequency and duration of supply chain disruptions is growing at an unprecedented rate within increasingly unpredictable economic climates, rife with political instability, bullwhipping the price of fuel, and lack of driver capacity accelerated by changing regulations.
Organizations are facing a raft of operational challenges, from rising transportation costs, to personnel and capacity shortages and long and slow communication chains. What’s more, competition within the logistics services market has never been higher.
