2017 Third-Party Logistics Study

The 2017 21st Annual Third-Party Logistics Study shows that shippers and their third-party logistics providers continue to move away from primarily transactional relationships and toward meaningful partnerships. Since the study began 21 years ago, researchers have seen the continued improvement in the strategic nature of relationships between shippers and third-party logistics providers.

This year’s survey suggests 3PLs and their customers continue to improve the quality of their relationships. Both parties—91% of 3PL users and 97% of 3PL providers—reported that their relationships are successful and that their work is yielding positive results.
