The report looks to the future to help logistics providers and retailers prepare their businesses for expected changes in the post-pandemic landscape.

This guide, in which UKWA CEO Peter Ward contributes insights into the impact on logistics firms and what they can do to protect their operations, shines a spotlight on the current and future challenges facing logistics, with a focus on SME 3PLs, wholesalers and online retailers.
Whatever lies ahead, businesses will need to be flexible if they are to step up to the challenges of an increasingly online world and this report provides timely advice.
