Shippers Panel: The Modern Project Logistics Supply Chain – Or Is It?
Cargo owners and shippers are often eager to bring modern technology and best practices to bear on their logistics transport and supply chains, but a traditional industry can be resistant. How quickly is the project transport industry evolving? What iterations of 3PL/4PL services, new technologies and other innovations would be welcomed? Our panel of executive shippers will discuss what they see, and what they’d like to see, from their project logistics supply chains.
