When most picture the logistics industry or 3PL of the future, they think of automated self-driving vehicles or package delivering drones. While these may be in-store someday, these lofty advancements currently remain more aspirational than tangible. Despite being a long way off from a complete infrastructure overhaul, transformation is still happening at 3PL firms every day.

In this webinar, Zipline Logistics’ president and co-founder, Andrew Lynch, will discuss the 3PL and logistics industry of the future by highlighting the technological advancements currently in the space and how firms are incorporating those to find performance-enhancing and cost-reducing retail delivery strategies.

The discussion will focus on how strides in productivity, connectivity, and visibility tools have transformed 3PLs and helped increase the efficiency of the CPG supply chain.

From real-time tracking to price-matching technology, today’s 3PL is much different from the one of decades past. Third-party providers are working smarter through technologically enabled solutions to find efficient capacity, discover accurate pricing, and eliminate many roadblocks that slowed down predecessors.

This webinar aims to give CPG brands a look into the tools that are being used to deliver their freight to retail customers in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Learn how 3PL specialization, service, and technological insights, are paving the way for a brighter logistics future.
