With much speculation over Amazon’s not-so-secret plans to develop its own air-delivery service, the logistics industry has come under closer inspection in recent times by much of the consumer world.

 

The pursuit of 30-minute delivery times through the use of Amazon’s drones has been cause for concern among both regulators and consumers, with one of many issues being the question of ensuring the safety of unmanned shipment services.

 

Back on the ground, strategic decisions over the choice of transportation of goods are of paramount importance for businesses worldwide. To find out about what procurement professionals around the world are planning for 2016 take our survey and receive a free Logistics Category Planning 2016 report.

 

According to this year’s report, 38% of respondents believe talent shortages will have the greatest impact on logistics category strategies in 2016. As such, wise leaders will dedicate some resources to capturing limited talent, as well as ensuring suppliers possess the resources they need to deliver.

 

To receive further insight on procuring logistics services take part in the survey and receive price predictions and plans from the Category Planning Guide 2016, covering container shipping, third-party logistics and warehousing.

 

The report includes regional price predictions, information on the geographic scope of contracts, the degree of consolidation within categories, the most effective procurement levers for each sub-category and much more.
