    Caught in the Middle: What Forwarders Really Think of Technology Investment

    Being a forwarder can sometimes feel like getting trapped in a room where the walls are closing in. On one side are shippers, customers demanding more services, faster response, and better data day by day. On the other side are asset-based capacity providers, the ones holding the physical space forwarders need to serve shippers. In between, forwarders are expected to be great partners to both the supply and demand side of the industry. All the while, they’re fighting to justify their existence to shippers wanting to control more of their logistics function and fighting to keep at bay asset-based companies that see supply chain management services as higher-margin, capex-free opportunities. Amid that tension, forwarders have a huge array of technologies to consider, from the large legacy providers that still dominate the space to upstarts promising to make operations more efficient and sales opportunities more plentiful. In this session, three forwarders will discuss how they navigate these challenges, and what their technology investment choices mean to shippers and capacity providers.
