|Journal of Commerce--Retailers and other beneficial cargo owners are citing cost containment as their top priority in negotiations with logistics providers, according to a warehouse industry executive. |
Logistics providers are being asked by their customers to assume the risks associated with warehousing and transportation while the cargo interests concentrate on their core business operations.
This is a plus for third-party logistics providers, Cliff Otto, president of Saddle Creek, told the Los Angeles Transportation Club Tuesday. “There are tremendous opportunities on the warehouse side of the business,” he said.
