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
