The pace of supply chain and logistics transformation shows no signs of stopping in 2018, and changes in commerce, technology, demographics, and regulation will have huge implications for the sector.

Three trends to keep top of mind are:

1. The electronic logging device (ELD) rollout in the United States, combined with previously introduced Hours of Service regulations and driver availability, and the impact on road freight.

2. International e-commerce boom, driving innovation and convergence in commerce shipping, and customs systems, and its influence on shipping, fulfillment, and customs compliance solutions.

3. Big data as a mainstream tool for monitoring risks, sources, and competition to develop more resilient supply chain systems, as geopolitical risks to the supply chain seem to be intensifying.
