Hazards On The Road Ahead?
INTRODUCTION TO THE REPORT
Transportation, a crucial element of an efficient supply chain, has continuously evolved over recent decades, adapting to market and consumer trends, in order to deliver the ultimate goal – end customer satisfaction. This transformation has been driven by multiple factors, including the rise of globalization and technological advances. But complicating this transformation even further was the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2019. The impact of the pandemic on ground transportation and the supply chain as a whole has undeniably reshaped the movement of goods even further. In this paper, we examine some of the key transportation trends and what they mean for businesses that need to choose a best-fit transport provider. From the increasing acceleration of e-commerce requiring resilient, agile and sustainable transportation solutions, to the growing need for the end-to-end visibility that data analytics and technology investment can bring, we look at the capabilities, expertise and excellence that successful businesses demand from today’s logistics transportation partners.
