Transport & Logistics

The pace of consolidation in the transport and logistics sector shows little sign of abating.

Recent surveys suggest around a third of businesses are planning acquisitions in the short to medium term, as firms target greater economies of scale through expansion.

All this at a time when the pressure to adapt, invest and evolve through the integration of new technologies remains high, if businesses want to retain customers and grow in such a dynamic market.

The focus is on how advanced AI solutions, big data and machine learning can help to optimise route scheduling, accurately predict demand, reduce the need for returns, and support supply chain decision making – areas which demonstrate the true pace of change being seen in the sector. Whilst cleaner vehicles and the introduction of goods-to-person robots, including drones, are being deployed in the race to cut carbon footprints.

Transport & Logistics is also a sector presenting huge opportunities. A shortage of skills and talent – from drivers, up to management – means many firms are introducing apprenticeships to attract college leavers and graduates into the industry, with the potential to carve out a career in an industry we all rely upon, daily.

As a team who understand this industry, we can support you and your colleagues with the internal and external communications you need, and that will make a real difference.
