The logistics industry is vital for any enterprise and hence forms the backbone of the overall supply chain management process. Though logistics outsourcing was growing at a CAGR of 5.82% and valued around USD $ 15 billion in 2011(Source: Data monitor), recession in conjunction with unrealistic customer expectations, escalating costs and a competitive business environment is threatening to nullify this upward trend.
