Insight into the critical technological developments and solutions that will shape the future of the logistics industry.
This report describes how sectors of the industry are using information systems to manage their operations, as well as how these solutions are evolving. We hope that by clarifying the context in which many of the established solutions have been used, we can help people understand the opportunities (and disadvantages) presented by some of the solution sets now emerging.
Our primary goal is to try and identify the critical developments and solutions that will be transformational, or at least enable transformational capabilities for their users. We recognize that not every organization can adopt transformational capabilities as fast as they might wish: issues of resources, culture and ongoing contracts are always factors that must be considered. However, we believe that we can act as a reference point for companies looking for some insight and perspective into what may seem to be a bewildering mix of nomenclature and choice.
