We have just released our latest in a series of topical Q&As with the CEOs of some of North America’s largest and most respected third party logistics providers. This special issue of the series features speakers from the 3PL Summit 2012, sharing their views on ‘Strategies for Growth and Innovation’.
This year’s respondents include the CEOs and COOs of GENCO ATC, Damco North America, Kenco, OHL, LMS Logistics, Transplace, FedEX Trade Networks, SGL, Weber Logistics, XPO Logistics, and Barrett Distribution Centers. We asked them:
·What are their growth strategies for the next year, and how will they distinguish themselves from their competitors?
·Where are the biggest opportunities, and threats, for 3PLs?
·How are they fighting commoditization in a tough market, and making sure they understand the needs of their customers?
·What keeps them up at night?
·What question would they ask of their fellow CEOs?
This user-friendly resource provides readers with real insight into the plans and anxieties of the leaders of 3PLs. You can download and save the PDF here
