There are still challenges ahead

While there are opportunities for growth, innovation and the implementation of new technologies, the logistics sector still has a number of obstacles that it will need to overcome going forward.

Customer expectations

In terms of delivery times and service quality, the expectations of customers have changed, with 37% saying speed influences their purchasing decisions. Customers also expect logistics partners to solve problems and help them drive growth, necessitating improved processes and optimised outcomes.

Contingency plans

With potentially as much as $4 trillion lost in revenue in recent times due to supply chain disruption, the logistics industry came under severe pressure, with supply chain partner blackouts not uncommon. The future will require improved strategic contingency planning to avoid future catastrophe.

Supply chain visibility

57% of businesses have poor visibility across their supply chain, and logistics companies must overcome this to ensure accurate and on-time deliveries. Customers also now want to track shipments and get updates, making increased visibility and control over supply chains essential.
