The logistics industry is changing—everything from truck driver demographics to fluctuating oil prices. As a logistics professional, it is critical to not only be aware of the changes that are occurring, but to have the ability to act on them. This ever-changing landscape places even more weight on the importance of maintaining relationships with the companies dedicated to serving the industry.
Logistics is a fast-paced industry. As a supply chain or logistics professional, you are responsible for time-sensitive, critical tasks. Time is an asset that you don’t have enough of, creating an even greater need for a strong relationship with a third-party logistics company you can trust with your bottom line. There are days when it may seem impossible to get that day’s task done, let alone begin to predict and prepare for the future of the industry.
