Hundreds of millions of dollars of capital have been plunged into the Latin American logistics industry the past few years, most in the form of backing tech-native third-party logistics providers. For the most part, the funding is designed to create digital powerhouses that can consolidate a fragmented industry heavily reliant on "local heroes." But as in other regions that have seen large-scale investment into logistics technology, the established set of incumbents don't have any plans to be wiped off the map. In addition, a few Latin America-based players saw the digital writing on the wall long before venture firms did and have been investing in digital operational and customer service capability for years. In this session, a group of existing players in the space give a lay of the land of how software is — and isn't — changing the nature of logistics in Latin America.
