Global Contract Logistics 2006
Collaboration in the Supply Chain The global contract logistics sector has been at the forefront of the many changes which the logistics industry has experienced over the past twenty years. Manufacturers and retailers are increasingly out-sourcing a variety of value adding logistics functions, above and beyond warehousing and distribution. This trend has been adopted to varying degrees throughout Europe and the Americas, and is now increasingly important in the Asia Pacific.
There are many opportunities for logistics companies to extend the range and breadth of out-sourced services which they can provide and this will fuel growth of the contract logistics market for many years to come. However nowadays the users of logistics services are increasingly asking for more from their suppliers. They realise that logistics costs are likely to increase over the coming years due to rising fuel, labour and environmental costs. As a result they are looking for a new approach: collaboration.
Collaboration involves the co-operation of manufacturers, retailers, their suppliers and logistics providers - parties which have not always traditionally acted in concert. Transport Intelligence's thought provoking report Global Contract Logistics 2006 examines these initiatives and how they will impact on logistics service providers.
