Top 20 Logistics Tech Companies - 2017

The importance of logistics is often overlooked when an organization focuses more on other business processes like product design and marketing. But transporting products to its customers is an indispensable duty of the manufacturer. Currently, customers are leaning towards demands for more frequent but smaller shipments delivered faster. There is an increasing emphasis on business to consumer shipping with the process of drop shipping making suppliers and not merchants or retailers responsible for transporting goods to customers. Against this backdrop of an evolving logistics landscape, logistics tech solution providers are invaluable for enabling customers to select the best carrier for every package and optimizing transportation.

Existing and new logistics tech solution providers are making use of data derived from negotiations, audits, analyses of historical shipping data, and business intelligence to offer cost reduction services complementing the current parcel and freight management processes as well. Robust shipping systems incorporating domestic and international parcel as well as LTL and FTL are offered for shipping goods all over the world.

Acknowledging the importance of visibility, intelligence, and the addition of carriers for customers’ benefit, logistics tech solution providers are aiming to develop and provide a total management solution working towards supply chain optimization with well rounded financial services offering faster integration directly to ERP and eCommerce platforms.
