DHL publishes 2016 Logistics Trend Radar

28 April 2016

DHL has revealed 26 key trends that could impact the logistics industry in the next five to ten years. The 2016 Logistics Trend Radar, the third in the series, introduces new trends, tracks the evolution of trends spotted in earlier editions and ones that have faded or become mainstream since the series started in 2013.
One of the trends identified is Convenience Logistics. With increasing consumer trust in purchasing groceries and pharmaceuticals online, there is high demand for new cold-chain packaging and delivery solutions. By 2018, global sales of biopharma cold-chain products are expected to increase annually by 13% (Press Release DHL, 20 April 2016).
