Third-Party Logistics Providers Invest in Proprietary Digital Freight Platforms: Considerations for Platform Service Delivery

By: Alison CloseResearch Manager, Digital Business Operations and Analytics Services


This IDC Perspective highlights recent digital freight platform investments made by third-party logistics (3PL) providers.

"It will be becoming increasingly important for buyers to evaluate different platform options to help with their logistic operations, not only for online freight booking but for other logistics functions. The movement toward platforms is not slowing down, and IDC believes we will likely see more start-ups and more 3PL investments in the next three to five years and potentially some M&A activity," says Ali Close, manager, Finance and Accounting, Logistics, and Analytics BPO Services.
