Reality Check: Supply Chain Technology Innovation Benchmark Study - Report

From procurement and inventory management to transportation execution and regulatory compliance, technology can help streamline and improve a wide range of supply chain and logistics processes. But the accelerating pace of development of new and existing technologies in supply chain has made it difficult for even the most plugged-in logistics professionals to keep up.

In an effort to separate the hype from reality on some of the most exciting existing and emerging supply chain technologies, American Shipper conducted a survey of nearly 300 BCOs, 3PLs, freight forwarders, software providers and other supply chain stakeholders. We analyzed the data from the survey to create our first supply chain technology innovation benchmark report.

Some of the key findings from this survey include:

  • 13% of firms don’t use any digital tools aside from Excel
  • 31% rank blockchain as the most exciting emerging technology
  • 42% say cost is the biggest impediment to technology investment
