Presents conclusions from a survey showing that many of Australia’s largest firms utilize the services of contract logistics providers and some other firms are considering doing so. Provides insights in planning for implementation, for example, the need to educate the third party logistics services provider about the firm’s requirements and also information for the providers of the services.
