Joe Carlier, Penske Logistics senior sales leader.
Two Penske Logistics senior leaders will offer their supply chain expertise at JDA’s conference, FOCUS 2015, which will be held at the World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida, on April 26 through April 29. Andy Moses, senior vice president of global products, and Joe Carlier, senior vice president of global sales, will be appearing on panel discussions.
Carlier is part of a three-person panel that will highlight results of the 2015 Third-Party Logistics Study: The State of Logistics Outsourcing (complimentary copies available at www.3PLStudy.com). The study’s special topics are customer relationship management and mobile technologies; omni-channel; strategic workforce management; and Mexico.
Global third-party logistics providers are optimistic about the current state of the industry along with the future revenue growth of both their individual companies and the regional 3PL industry as a whole. Among service providers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, e-commerce and near shoring are among the factors contributing to the most significant growth.
Third-party logistics providers and the shippers doing business with them are continuing to collaborate and strengthen their relationships. That collaboration is contributing to the positive results they are experiencing from their partnerships, and a majority of shippers—92 percent—reported that their relationships with 3PLs generally have been successful. Among 3PLs, that number increased to 98 percent.
The findings are part of the 19th Annual Third Party Logistics Study: The State of Logistics Outsourcing.
