Global Contract Logistics 2013 – New Research Available

Share Article just published a new market research report: Global Contract Logistics 2013.

The global contract logistics market has often had to evolve to meet the changing needs of economies by creating new service offerings and expanding geographically.

Today, in the aftermath of the 2008 global recession, the contract logistics market is once again evolving to support new trends in world trade. For example, manufacturers are moving production away from China and ‘nearshoring’ their activities. Furthermore, the geographic spread of logistics hubs is changing and new ones are being developed closer to higher concentrations of customers. Moreover, the industry is experiencing a shift in trade lanes towards emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, South Africa and the Middle East. As such, contract logistics providers are evolving service offerings and expanding into these new geographic markets.

Ti’s new report Global Contract Logistics 2013 utilises flow charts, illustrative maps and diagrams to provide unique and comprehensive analysis of these trends and developments as well as:
The structure of the market
