Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Global economic forces, paradigm changes and transformation in industry verticals will set the stage for third-party logistics competition in 2014 and beyond. While the future offers up plenty of uncertainty, one thing remains clear: Top executives at 3PLs will need to lead their organizations to become innovators and value creators for their customers if they hope to survive and thrive in the marketplace.

To support this vital undertaking, C-level executives, major customers and industry experts will assemble at 3PL Value Creation 2013 to assess the future outlook of 3PL segments and explore strategies for value creation that will forge competitive advantage. It is a unique opportunity to get a look at the current and future state of third-party logistics from the best global and North American 3PLs and hear about the value-added customer services that will define the future competitive landscape of the industry.

To establish a competitive benchmark, the event will also report on the current best in class operating capabilities and examine how they differentiate winners and losers in the 3PL market. There will also be insightful discussions of such 3PL hot spots as e-commerce, pharma, cold chain and returns and what comes next after lean, green and asset-light.

3PL Value Creation 2013 is your chance to position your company to be providers of leading cutting-edge initiatives that enhance your customersí supply chain flexibility and agility and boost theirs and your bottom lines.

I hope to see you in Chicago!
