For 18 years this study has documented the significant transformation of the 3PL industry, which examines the global outsourced marketplace across topics such as big data, preferential sourcing, smart growth and shipper-3PL relationships.
Encouragingly, shippers continue to recognize the important role 3PLs can play in the new normal, as nearly all shipper respondents (91 per cent) stated they regard their relationships with 3PLs as important or strategic in today's global marketplace.
