Logistics professionals need to stay informed of what is happening in the industry, and how emerging trends in technology, outsourcing, regulations, and business practices can impact their jobs and companies. There is plenty of information out there; the challenge is filtering through all the noise to zero in on what is truly important and why.
And that is the mission of our supply chain & logistics team: provide logistics professionals with clear and concise analyses of logistics trends, technologies, and services. To serve this purpose, ARC supply chain and logistics team launched Logistics Viewpoints in January 2009.
ARC supply chain and logistics analysts Steve Banker, Clint Reiser and Chris Cunnane bring more than 35 years of logistics research experience to their writing and analysis, working closely with leading manufacturers, retailers, logistics service providers, and technology companies. Their insightful postings address clearly and concisely the basic questions logistics professionals are asking: What are the most important trends? What news matters and why? What is new in logistics technology and supply chain best practices? What actions should I take in response?
