How Has Logistics Changed Over The Years?

Believe it or not, the logistics industry has been rapidly changing due to consistent technological advancements over the past 25 years or so. Thanks to positive changes and development in technology, the ability to scale projects on a larger scale has never been more effortless. 

How Has Logistics Changed Over The Years


However, there are still advancements and improvements to be made, and AFP Global Logistics is looking forward to growing along with the industry. In fact, we have already made several changes throughout the years. 


For example, AFP started as a domestic air freight forwarder as Air Freight Plus, Inc. in 1991, but over the years has evolved into a full-service, one-stop logistics company. By 2012, half of our total business was in this industry. In addition, many of our clients were coming to us because they had experienced service delays when working with other companies in the industry. That led us to establish a company division dedicated solely to our client’s unique challenges and pressures in this field.


So how exactly has the logistics industry as a whole changed over the years? And how might it continue to grow and change? Here are a few things to note:


  1. Expansion


As the eCommerce market continues to grow worldwide, the logistics industry must continue to grow along with it. While these international markets have certainly contributed to making the supply chain industry more complex, it just makes sense to continue expanding our services to as many potential customers as possible. 


  1. Accommodation


Several historical events such as 9/11 and the 2007-2008 financial crisis have had their personal effects on the industry. As a result, several day-to-day actions and activities were affected by these events, and many changes had to be made. With this said, AFP Global Logistics is always anticipating changes in the transport network and supply chain, and we are always ready for anything.


  1. Performance


These days logistics companies need to offer a full range of services for their clients to develop comprehensive logistical solutions. For example, technology continues to change the logistics industry positively by improving overall performance and speed. However, companies such as ours must still do the job accurately. 


At AFP Global Logistics, we can provide a full range of shipping and logistics services, and our 25 years in the business have given us the tools we need to create customized logistics solutions tailored to each client we serve.
