Distribution and logistics companies must balance the cost of transportation (effectiveness) and the speed and flexibility of delivery (responsiveness) to succeed. The use of technology and analytic tools has expanded in recent years as companies seek to understand and improve their operations. This trend will only increase as RFID and IOT technology become ubiquitous. However, the promise of technology and analytics often is greater than the benefit achieved as organizations struggle with implementation and optimization. For global organizations, the impact of changing regulations, legal risks and political unrest are impacting cost and performance of their operations.
