Comment on LinkedIn article by Adrian Gonzalez : Is XPO Logistics Biting More Than It Can Chew?
Interesting article. As Adrian points out the industry is consolidating and some 3PL’s are shifting from asset light to asset heavier. Clients would be justified in questioning their 3PL’s objectivity in selection of transportation services where the 3PL owns carriers. If the 3PL is to truly manage the outsourced logistics functions there needs to be a firewall between consulting and LTL services.
