The transportation and logistics worry list
Energy prices are increasing, there’s an increasing dearth of skilled labor – especially for airline pilots and truck drivers – while government regulations and budget deficits threaten to choke off economic growth and infrastructure improvements.
That’s quite a “worry list” of issues for the transportation and logistics (T&L) industry; a list compiled from the broad 17th Annual Global CEO Survey conducted by global consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
PwC surveyed 1,344 business leaders across 68 countries in the last quarter of 2013, conducting further in-depth interviews with 34 of those CEOs. Within that mix, PwC did some digging into the T&L sector to find what worries the CEOs of firms that move goods within the U.S. as well as worldwide.
