20 Most Promising Logistics Technology Consulting Companies - 2013

Logistics is simply an unavoidable phase in a supply chain. As industries pass through steep and slump in demand and supply, the direct impact of it is seen on logistics companies and in their deployment strategies. Traditional methodologies to analyze and track inventories have by far been scrapped by most 'transporters' and latest technologies such as GPS (Global Positioning System) and Cloud have been integrated to their system, making the ecosystem healthier and competitive.

Of late, operational functionalities of logistics have expanded to various verticals including integrated planning, control, realization, and monitoring of all internal and network-wide material, part, and product flow which has poised to be a challengeable opportunity to most vendors. Hence, most logistics providers are redesigning their supply channels by incorporating latest technological trends like monitoring and providing shipping data in seconds through cloud integration.
