12 Trends that are Shaping the Future of Logistics

Han Nabben cites a statistic from McKinsey, which states that about 600 cities are poised to grab 65 percent of global GDP by the mid-twenties, amounting to an extra $30 trillion into the world economy. Those are some big numbers. Nabben delves into 12 trends in logistics that will lead to this bigger world:

  1. More fragmented, unpredictable growth patterns
  2. Higher supply chain flexibility
  3. Globalization
  4. Near shoring closer to end users as cost of business in Asia grows
  5. Multi-channel sourcing
  6. Advanced IT solutions
  7. Better continuity with more transport routes to reduce delay risks
  8. Sustainability that reduces businesses’ social, economic, and environmental impact
  9. Compliance with the law
  10. Partnerships between manufacturers and service providers for innovation
  11. End-to-end visibility
  12. Increasing complexity in supply chains
