Upstream, a global surplus of ocean vessels (largely due to the supply of cheap financing) has continued to depress shipping rates and has forced operators to squeeze cost structures, reorganize and sell assets to remain fiscally agile. Freight forwarders are being pressed to juggle the uncertainties of specific industries and take on additional risks to provide efficient and reliable shipping options to stay competitive.
Downstream, supply chains have been further complicated by the onset of the express delivery age. Customer convenience is the new king and the expectation for transparent, on-time deliveries is compelling businesses to team up with tech-forward, third-party service providers for cost-effective storage, fulfillment, and last-mile distribution.
No matter how far upstream, or downstream, we partner with clients across the entire supply chain to modernize and streamline operations to help drive value in an increasingly customer experience-focused environment. The MERU team and network of leading industry experts have proven experience helping Transportation & Logistics organizations navigate both external and internal challenges to better enable key drivers of performance.
