The year 2021 was a very complicated year for the logistics and freight transport sector. Supply chain problems continue to be present throughout the world.

Persistence of tensions in the global supply chain. Transport companies will face the challenge of guaranteeing service in a context of disruption: bottlenecks in maritime transport and the scarcity of raw materials cause delays to accumulate in the flow of goods and in production, forcing the search for new supply points and alternative movements of goods.

To manage volatility and prevent supply chains from being broken, the sector will have to evolve towards more flexible models, which allow anticipating and having different alternatives available on a day-to-day basis. And in order to adapt to a changing reality, it will be necessary to have transport providers with dynamic solutions capable of guaranteeing service in the face of variations in demand.

Automation within logistics will be one of the most powerful ways to fully optimize all processes. To do this, companies will bet on the use of technological tools with which to control the execution of operations, improve efficiency in the last mile, guarantee traceability and, of course, carry out digital documentation management.

Consumer consumption habits have changed, consumption has opened up to endless distribution channels, and this creates new operational challenges for the sector, which must ensure availability in each channel. In this sense, there is still a large margin for organizational improvement, and cooperation between suppliers and companies must be strengthened to achieve higher levels of productivity.
