A new study investigating the third-party logistics industry shows that China is the key country for growth in international sourcing and trade, and that 3PL providers are a major factor in enabling this. This is one of the major conclusions in today's published annual survey.

The study found that 53% of the respondents intend to further expand their activities into China. Most commonly, their plans call for importing and exporting finished goods to and from China (51%), closely followed by outsourcing production to third parties in China (47%), and creating production facilities (41%). In addition, a vast majority of the senior supply chain executives surveyed for the report indicate that they use their current 3PL providers to help them deal with the substantial logistic challenges that exist as part of their expansions into China.

The results come from the 11th Annual 3PL study, published by Capgemini and Georgia Institute of Technology, in collaboration with SAP and DHL. The study was launched today at the 2nd annual SCM Logistics World 2006 conference at Suntec Centre, Singapore. The report provides a strategic assessment of the use of 3PLs across several key geographies and major industry segments and offers insight into the future of the 3PL industry.
