    Globalization of the world economy has redefined logistics

TVO Logistics PyramidCapacity challenges and demand growth are driving change in logistics

Supply chain disruptions caused by the global pandemic had a direct impact on the global logistics industry, bringing factors such as the shortage of labor, fragmented supply lines, weak infrastructure and a lack of real-time visibility to the forefront. While growth has been surging month-on-month, supplier deliveries have continued to slow. Congestion, difficulties in hiring, capacity challenges, delays, raw material price surges and carrier cost increases are snarling up supply chains, threatening to undermine recovery. Shippers and carriers need to act now to gain visibility and control and build an agile, resilient, digitally-enabled supply chain and operation.
