SNEAK PEEK: “Building a Supply Chain For Long-Term Success” at EFT 3PL & Supply Chain Summit
Logistics moves fast, and so does Coyote Logistics. As conversations surrounding the increasing rate of automation in our industry become pervasive, supply chain professionals are left with questions that are best answered with in-depth industry insights, data, and analytics.
That’s why Coyote has invested in new original research over the past year — including teaming up with two third-party market research firms. In total, we surveyed over 600 shippers and carriers across all markets, levels of experience, size, profession, and industry. Specifically, in one study done with Martec, we surveyed shippers and carriers on automation and the workforce, emerging technology, where human support is irreplaceable and the optimal balance of these for business success. In another conducted with MakerStreet, we asked them about their challenges and needs across all major European markets.
PREVIEW: According to the Martec study, 43% of shippers say booking shipments is a task they value performed by a combination of people and technology, while only 23% would prefer technology to handle this task alone.
To launch this timely research, on October 14-16, Coyote’s Head of Europe, Joel Gard, will preview our findings at the EFT 3PL & Supply Chain Summit with his presentation entitled “The Evolution of Technology + Humanity: Building a Supply Chain For Long-Term Success.”
If you’re attending the EFT 3PL & Supply Chain Summit, be sure to stop by Gard’s presentation in-person on Tuesday, October 15 from 11:40a.m-12:10 p.m., or stream our webinar on Thursday, October 24 for an in-depth analysis of our research that will better equip your business and employees with the insights needed for supply chain transformation.
Following Gard’s EFT presentation, Coyote will release the complete study, which outlines critical key learnings, predictions, and insights on the fragmented European road freight market, what shippers and carriers are challenged with, the optimal blend of technology and human interface – and, most importantly, actionable steps to take in order to achieve long-term success.
Our goal with this study is to equip our network of shippers and carriers with the insights and data necessary to stay competitive in today and tomorrow’s complex global freight market.
