How has the global recession of last year impacted supply chain models? Will the crisis of last year result in further merger and acquisition activity in the logistics sector through 2010? Will near-sourcing slow the progress of globalisation? Will companies seek to move to even smaller inventory levels, particularly as product life-cycles get shorter and shorter? How have changes in technology impacted the logistics industry? Will RFID, long touted as a key value-add component for the supply chain industry, become a significant force in the industry? What impact will increasing security requirements – like the US’ 100 per cent screening for cargo carried in the bellies of passenger aircraft – have on the logistics sector? Will the trend towards outsourcing to 3/4PLs continue to grow? These are just some of the issues and trends that will be examined in the upcoming Logistics Supplement in the May issue of Payload Asia.
