Webinar: Global Logistics Outlook - The Year Ahead

Thu. November 29, 2018
2:00 pm - 3:15 pm


Join AlixPartners, a member of the EACCNY on this webinar aimed to analyze the state of logistics as 2018 winds down, review some of the major trends that may make 2019 an inflection year, and discuss how 3PLs and shippers should prepare for the year ahead.

Strong market demand, tightening capacity, higher pricing, and data-driven technology are combining to give third-party logistics providers a bright outlook.

According to Armstrong & Associates, the gross revenue of 3PLs in the US grew 10 percent in 2017 from the prior year and is on track to grow another 8.4 percent this year, to $199.7 billion in its four largest segments:

● Domestic transportation management
● International transportation management
● Value-added warehousing and distribution
● Dedicated contract carriage

Driving the growth are higher rates in the domestic truckload sector, as the strengthening US economy increases transportation demand, putting pressure on capacity already feeling the strains of this year’s electronic logging mandate. Importers, meanwhile, continue to race the clock on hundreds of billions of dollars in US tariffs, the latest of which will take effect on Jan. 1.That’s creating an extended container shipping peak season that likely will keep the pressure on supply chains well into 2019.

This webcast will analyze the state of logistics as 2018 winds down, examine the outlook in the year ahead, and discuss how shippers should prepare.
