From healthcare to eCommerce and hospitality, effective logistics forms the backbone for almost every industry. Whether you’re a national retailer or a local carrier, you need to move products and services to their final destination as quickly and affordably. But with rising inventory carrying costs, transportation costs and other expenses limiting efficiency across every shipping channel, organizations are looking to restructure and leverage emerging trends in order to retain their competitive edge. At TCM we’re monitoring the strategies that are driving these changes across logistics leaders like MAERSK, UPS and XPO as well as major retailers like Amazon and Walmart.
