Currently the supply-chains are being restructured from being national to becoming pan-European and even global. However, this development is partly hampered by the limited ability of the present 3PLs to accommodate the shippers' demands with respect to e.g. geographical scope and the scope of services, including intermodal transport.
Therefore, the PROTRANS proposal will investigate the role of 3PL providers and their impact on transport. In order to achieve the objectives of this task, the PROTRANS consortium will conduct the following research activities:
- map and analyse (SWOT-analysis) the European 3PLs market
- detail the most important challenges and determine barriers, success and failure factors
- assess the future importance of intermodal transport for the strategies of 3PLs, a.o. based on an intermodal perception index
