3PLs face slowing growth in 2014!

Portrait of the 3PL Market

How have your operations emerged from 2013?
A recent article from Richard Armstrong – chairman & CEO of supply chain research and consulting firm Armstrong & Associates – has revealed major trends for 2014 and offers a first-hand look into the state of today’s logistics operations: 
  • Globally the 3PL market has grown to $704 billion
  • 36 % of the market is located in Asia-Pacific
  • North American market represents 25%
  • Domestic transportation management has been very successful: managers have developed efficient models such as separating carrier capacity procurement from sales management
  • Market growth in 2014 should be in the 5% range

Join me at the IWLA Tech & Ops Conference!

For many years the International Warehouse Logistics Association has held an annual IT conference. This year the conference is being held in Chicago over Nov. 6-8. Details of the conference can be found here.

At $299 (IWLA Members) per attendee this educational event provides a fantastic ROI. Non-members are also welcome and I recommend the conference to you for your IT and operations staff.This event is for everyone in the warehouse who touches technology or oversees any aspect of operations. Of course, C-level executives who direct operations and technology employees will also reap benefits by attending. Be sure you’re there to network with these warehouse-based 3PL leaders and to learn more about the future of your trade association.

As a board member of the association I can attest to the value of both the association itself and the educational offerings provided for members. I look forward to seeing you, and your key IT and operations players, in Chicago in November.

Regards,
