I’d like to share this article on the upcoming trends in the field of logistics.
As it has been said in class, one of the trends that promise to transform the logistics World is technology. However, the other trend that is being addressed in this article is the one of the role of the logistics companies who are promoting fairer and more sustainable ways of doing business. For example, implementing innovative reverse logistics solutions such as recycling friendly hubs and trucks are part of a new trend logistics and recycling infrastructure.
In addition, offering discount deliveries to the underprivileged in order to enable fair access to basic logistics services is another example of this new approach. Although it appears that this strategy could hurt corporate profits; it can actually increase profit because it is adding value to the brands. Therefore those logistic companies will attract and retain more customers due to their new ways of thinking and doing business.
