Transportation & Logistics

Transportation carriers, logistics management (3PL) companies and brokers, and ports/terminals face many challenges: entry of non-traditional competitors and market intermediaries, regulatory changes such as the requirement for ELDs in trucking, heightened environmental hurdles and greater sustainability expectations, increased demands from shippers and end-users for fast, flexible, time-definite, cost-effective and increasingly global solutions, and expanding issues related to reverse logistics, just to list some of the main concerns. Competition within segments and across segments (e.g., TL vs. Intermodal) remains very aggressive.
