Abstract: An Overview of the State of Logistics in the US with Emphasis on Trends and Problems
The practice of logistics is undergoing radical transformation driven by changes in technologies and the emergence of new business concepts available to firms and their supply chains. Some of these new concepts and technologies, like 3D printing and omnichannel, are in more advanced stages of implementation. Others, like self-driving road vehicles and the Internet-of-Things are still in early stages of conceptualization and development. The goal of the lecture is to provide an overview of coming changes, especially in an environment of growing customer demand for service. The emphasis will not be in the technologies themselves, but on their viability and stage of implementation.
