Without logistics, the supply chains that keep the global economy moving would cease to exist. Forty percent of the global economy is tied to logistics-dependent industries and there are millions of logistics firms that keep supply chains moving.
The professionals that manage these logistics networks are under constant pressure to monitor threats, manage costs, and keep supply chains liquid and predictable. Unfortunately, their operations face volatility created by changes in economic, regulatory, geo-political, and technological developments. Natural and man-made disasters can also wreak havoc on logistics operations.
Luckily, for the millions of supply chain professionals and organizations that are involved in this critical industry, FreightWaves provides near real-time information and forecasts on how these developments will impact the logistics market and participants. For logistics and supply chain professionals, FreightWaves is the fastest way to navigate the freight market.
