Transport Intelligence Report: Global e-commerce Logistics 2017



The e-commerce boom has provided tremendous opportunities for growth for LSPs and retailers. However, it has prompted a fundamental change in the operations that take place within logistics facilities, compared to operations which feed brick and mortar outlets. e-commerce logistics provides a very different challenge.

Global e-commerce Logistics 2017, offers readers valuable insight into the development and future prospects of this market.

The report takes a top-down approach and presents this analysis first from a broad, industry-wide perspective, and then delves further to examine the supply chains of major e-retailers and the logistics providers which support them.

It features analysis on the differences in e-commerce supply chains and how retailers have had to adapt to keep pace with their competitors. It looks at the progression of the last-mile and how LSPs have adapted to expectations for a low-cost, high-quality service. The report also examines technological capabilities and how they are being deployed to meet these high customer expectations.

In addition, as well as Ti’s bespoke market size and forecasts at a global, regional and country level, Ti is offering, for the first time, the data and analysis of e-commerce-related logistics costs as a percentage of sales for 20 online retailers.
