2022 3PL Study

The past year has been full of volatility requiring everyone to work together as we navigate through uncertainties.

The past year has been full of volatility for shippers and their logistics providers, but the 2022 26th Annual Third-Party Logistics Study shows that shippers and their third-party logistics providers continue to experience benefits from their relationships. Both groups have worked together to navigate fluctuating demand, capacity problems and uncertainties in the market. This prestigious report is the longest running and most detailed look at the current state of logistics outsourcing globally. It investigates leading trends and takes a deep dive into how supply chain organizations and 3PLs can collaborate to drive value. Each year, the study selects special topics that warrant closer examination. The following special topics were included in the 2022 3PL Study:

  • Sustainability and ESG: Impacts on 3PL-Customer Relationships
  • The Intelligent Supply Chain: The Role of 5G and IoT
  • Cold Chain: Planning and Moving Sensitive Products
  • The Effects of COVID-19
  • The Need to Rebalance
  • The Risk of Non-Traditional Models
  • Keeping Supply Chains Connected
The findings highlight the trends and challenges supply chain leaders will have to reconcile in the coming years.
