3PLs, NEW SUPPLY CHAIN, BLUE OCEAN

There is a new e-commerce / multichannel that meets the immediacy needs of customers.  The new e-commerce/multichannel is driven by the new supply chain.

The new ecommerce will expand to other countries in the world.  The new supply chain will expand to other industries and markets.

Right now, a handful of companies are implementing the new e-commerce.  And they are meeting the transport/delivery issue using their own solutions, instead of using the standard transport options and carriers.

3PL and logistics service providers need to wake up to the new supply chain.  Or they will be left behind as shippers move on without them and as new providers step up to the challenge and opportunity.

All this is a blue ocean strategy for retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers.  It is also a blue ocean for 3PLs and other logistics service providers.
