Adam B. Guilbault


This paper delves into the global logistics market with an eye on technological advancements and the future of the industry. Expanding across all modes of transportation, a review of historical progress and current market situations reveals what lies ahead for the industry and what obstacles exist moving forward. A proposed network solution is examined via a case study involving two international logistics providers as a means of exploring potential resolutions to existing and forthcoming challenges in the industry.
