10 Most Promising Logistics Tech Consulting/Services Companies - 2018

The evolution of the logistics industry and the advancement relevant technologies has increased the expectations of customers. Buyers now prefer receiving their ordered shipment without any delay or wear and tear in its original condition, and it is crucial for online retailers to ensure that these demands are met. This reality has propelled online retailers and other businesses to look for freight management services such as third-party logistics (3PLs) and freight forwarding solutions to transport their products across different locations. Moreover, these 3PLs and freight forwarders also offer much-needed flexibility and resilience for the transportation of goods in a secure manner.

However, logistics as an operation does not only take into account the shipping goods from storage to buyer’s location but also encompasses various other elements such as packaging, storing and the assortment of goods, along with delivery processes. Thus, many organizations employ transportation management systems (TMS) to carry out services including selection of best routes, management of carriers, and digitization of paper-based documentations. Furthermore, to improve the efficiency of their work, retailers and e-commerce business owners are pursuing on-site, value added services such as labeling the goods, inspecting electronic items, and testing it on the site.

In this edition of CIOReview, we explore such services and consulting partners that help organizations carry out their logistics services in a timely and secure manner.
