TORONTO, Ont.– Breininger & Associates has released the latest iteration of its annual Canadian Courier and Logistics Industry Market Trends Report.
Using a combination of text and graphs, this comprehensive and detailed document covers the top 40 trends currently affecting the Canadian Courier & Logistics Industry in the context of 17 major subject groupings.
Examples of topics covered include the volatile and uncertain nature of market growth, how the industry is embracing lean operating principles to minimize cost and maximize customer value, the strong leadership the industry is demonstrating in terms of environmental stewardship, the continued evolution of services offered, trends in market pricing and the ongoing impact of security and regulatory programs.
“This is the 11th edition of our Market Trends Report, and as is the case each year, the number and complexity of forces driving the industry continues to increase” said Gary Breininger, president of Breininger & Associates.
The report offers something for everyone, according to Breininger.
“If you’re a courier company, the report will provide valuable insights into the key trends driving the market, and the strategies that should be considered to maximize success. Providers of logistics services in general will also benefit from the report, as many of the trends discussed and information contained in it extend beyond the courier sector alone. Finally, shippers, or users of courier and logistics services can use the report to gain a better understanding of major developments within the sector to ensure they are working with service providers who can best meet their needs at the best prices,” Breininger said.
“While there are certainly a number of trends that characterize the market, the most pervasive are the continuing efforts of couriers (and 3PL’s in general) to embrace lean operating principles to deliver maximum value to customers, service offering adjustments to address the entire spectrum of customers supply chain and logistics requirements, and the substantial impact technology continues to have on the industry in terms of both service improvement and cost reduction” added Breininger.
