Results and Findings of the 27th Annual Study

The annual Third-Party Logistics Study reports the results from a survey of shippers and 3PLs, providing perspectives on their relationships, priorities and challenges. While some stability has returned to specific areas of the supply chain, uncertainty still looms and the relationships between 3PLs and shippers continue to be a valuable component of supply chain success.

This year's report examines the current trends and critical roles that shippers and 3PLs play in the supply chain, including these key topics:

  • Supply chain talent strains
  • Reverse logistics
  • Environment, social and governance trends
  • Rebalancing inventory
  • Technology as a differentiator
  • Demand for cold chain
