Annual State of Logistics Outsourcing


Cap Gemini, Penn State University, Korn Ferry, Eyefortransport and Penske have sponsored this 18th annual “State of Logistics Outsourcing” study. I commend the study to you.

The report highlights the healthy relationship that exists between manufacturers and providers. Shippers indicated an average logistics cost reduction of 11% and a general satisfaction with outsourcing.

There is both good and bad news in the report for 3PL’s. 55% of shippers select 3PL’s based on their ability to provide continuous improvement, 49% look for experience in the shipper’s vertical.

42% see established and ongoing relationships as important selection criteria. Interestingly, many shippers are moving more to contract bids and shorter contract periods to leverage competition among 3PL’s which is at odds with the notion of ‘relationships’.

Leadership is also seen as vital and shippers will, increasingly, look to the quality of the leaders in a 3PL operation in making selection decisions.

As it has been the case for many years, IT capabilities continue to be at the forefront when making selection decisions. The study states:

“…. our research also finds that 3PL IT capabilities are becoming increasingly important to shippers ….”

Visibility and connectivity are required attributes of today’s supply chain partners and your systems will come under greater scrutiny than ever.

As a 3PL this report will provide a wealth of intelligence and allow you to strategically position yourself to retain and grow your business. The report can be found here.

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.
