In an era where technology is continuing to migrate consumer spending habits online and away from brick-and-mortar stores, the newly released 2019 Third-Party Logistics Study (#3PLStudy) highlights how supply chains are also going digital and using science to keep pace.
Here are several videos in support of the 2018 Third-Party Logistics Study, that were filmed at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta during the 2017 Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) EDGE yearly conference.
CSCMP EDGE 2017: 3PL Industry Focused on Relationships, Technology to Drive Optimization and Performance
Supply chain activity continues to accelerate, and shippers and their logistics providers keep moving towards more meaningful partnerships that can provide value and create a competitive advantage. At the same time, greater availability of data and the ability to make real-time decisions are driving shippers, and their logistics providers, towards more collaborative relationships, which is leading to new and innovative solutions.
If you’re a supply chain professional, Penske Logistics is requesting your assistance as a survey participant in the 2018 Third-Party Logistics Study: The State of Logistics Outsourcing. Penske is collaborating with Penn State University and new sponsor Infosys Consulting to uncover key market trends.

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.
