To view the press release announcing the survey results, please 16th Annual 3PL CEO Survey.
The surveys discussed below mark a continuation of a series of annual surveys of the CEOs of major 3PL service providers that began in 1994. During 2009, three separate surveys were conducted—one of the CEOs of large companies serving the North American 3PL marketplace, another of those serving the European market, and a third of companies serving the Asia-Pacific 3PL marketplace. Thirty-five CEOs were involved in the surveys, and collectively their companies generated in excess of $64 billion in 3PL revenues in those three markets during 2008.
