The logistics industry has experienced significant growth as a result of continuous outsourcing activities by manufacturers, producers, wholesalers and retailers from all industries. Recent trends such as global sourcing, increasing supply chain complexity, worldwide re-location of production plants and the global nature of e-commerce increases the need for sophisticated logistics solutions. Growth Strategies of Logistics Service Providers examines the different roles and capabilities of logistics firms in order to understand their future development and strategic growth.

Growth Strategies of Logistics Service Providers looks at how an organization can maintain its competitive advantage and outperform its competitors. Including questions and answers that look at strategic capabilities and performance of logistics operators, 3PLs and 4PLs, this case study tests the understanding of the differences between the different types of logistics providers.
