research shows global shippers are being challenged to integrate domestic and international logistics operations. For many shippers, particularly those leveraging multiple modes, this initiative requires major changes to business processes, organizational structure, and IT systems. It is clear there are many hurdles in integrating these classically disparate operations.
This one-hour discussion will focus on the market forces causing this trend, the unique challenges in international and domestic logistics, some surprising similarities, and the role technology providers are playing in making this trend a reality.
Key discussion topics will include:
- Trends impacting global shippers and the 3PLs on which they rely.
- Complexities that make international transportation different than domestic.
- The less obvious similarities between domestic and international.
- Consolidation of TM platforms across modes and geographies.
- The emergence of SaaS platforms and their growing importance.
- Opportunities and benefits of successful integration.
