5th ANNUAL GLOBAL LOGISTICS PLANNING GUIDE
THE HOW-TO STORIES & ADVICE YOU CAN USE TO PLAN YOUR GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN
With the new year fast approaching and bringing with it the Trump era, global traders have much to consider while preparing for changes in 2017 and beyond. This year’s Global Logistics Planning Guide is here to help you in the immediate, with supply-chain advice for integrating with a 3PL (Pg. 50), shipping by air to Asia (Pg. 54), intermodal cross border options (Pg. 58), hiring a drayage carrier (Pg. 62) and whether you should set up your own warehousing (Pg. 64).
We’ve also incorporated additional data points from two trustworthy sources—the top brass at U.S. exporting firms and logistics industry professionals—looking at logistics planning not just for next year but also for five and 15 years down the road. We surveyed 108 CEOs, presidents and like titles at U.S. manufacturing companies that export for their insights and outlook as it relates to their supply chain approach. Three logistics professionals also share their opinions and expertise for planning your logistics for the coming year, as well as in the changing environments of the coming five- and 15-year spans.
