3PLs in demand but need to work on innovation
from Material Handling & Logistics
More than 40 percent of companies that outsource intend to conduct a bid or rebid for part of their network to a logistics service provider within the next 12 months, according to the Outsourced Distribution Report by Tompkins Supply Chain Consortium. "Despite the uncertainty in the economy, shippers are finding their existing networks in need of additional capacity," says Tim Pyne, vice president at Tompkins International and co-author of the report. "They look to LSPs to fill this gap and want to ensure that they join up with a provider that meets their performance expectations."
