Business disruption – driven by massive changes in technology and information management – is sweeping through every industry – even transportation and logistics.

Here’s PwC’s take on the changes sweeping through the transportation and logistics industry.

“Like most other industries, transportation and logistics (T&L) is currently confronting immense change; and like all change, this brings both risk and opportunity. New technology, new market entrants, new customer expectations, and new business models.”

Here are 6 key information management challenges impacting transportation and logistics:

  1. T&L companies need to commit to digitizing their core back-end processes.
  2. Containerization is about to be pushed to the next level. 
  3. Companies are demanding greater transparency across their supply base – and that means information management must be standardized and automated.
  4. Manufacturers are demanding that T&L companies help them mitigate the increased risk of longer and more variable supply chains.
  5. The “last mile” is in the process of huge transformation. 
  6. Information-centric transformations open up enormous opportunities for insights driven by analytics.
