Like any other industry, transportation and logistics is currently undergoing an immense change due to the ongoing pandemic. Additionally, the same companies are also facing an era of unprecedented change as digitisation takes hold and customer expectations to evolve. Today, platform technology has given rise to new business models, often driven by start-ups that enter the logistics industry. New ‘sharing’ business models could have as much of an impact on the sector as new technology.
And the industry’s current customers and suppliers may end up being the most significant new entrants. This indicates a trajectorial path towards an exciting future where a typical logistics provider and vendor in the market will evolve into a more consulting-driven approach becoming much like project managers, leading to new models such as E-Brokerage. In this way, new technologies will enable greater efficiency and more collaborative operating models while re-shaping the marketplace. Consequently, with more disruption ahead, companies need to anticipate how their capabilities will need to evolve. The best will develop services and solutions that will create demand instead of just following it. To do this, APAC CIO Outlook has compiled a list of Top 10 Logistics Technology Companies to guide organisations in the supply chain and logistics sector in harnessing the power of technology to tackle today’s challenges. We hope this issue of the APAC CIO Outlook helps you build the partnership you and your firm needs to foster a technologically-driven business environment.
