Seeking Zen in a Post-Pandemic 3PL Market

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — According to Armstrong & Associates, Inc. (A&A’s) newest report, “Seeking Zen: A Post-Pandemic 3PL Market – Latest Third-Party Logistics Market Results and Predictions for 2021 Including Estimates for 190 Countries” the volatile 2020 U.S. COVID-driven Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Market created growth opportunities for Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs) with strong carrier management, e-commerce, and air freight forwarding capabilities, while other 3PLs did not fare as well. After having a lackluster 2019 when we saw a year-over-year decline in transportation activity as import tariffs took hold, we awoke to a pandemic nightmare in March of 2020 with vast economic shutdowns. There was no time like the present for logistics expertise, and 3PL prevailed as an essential industry.

Leading all 3PL segments for revenue growth in 2020 was International Transportation Management (ITM) which consists of air and ocean freight forwarding, customs brokerage, and complementary value-added services. Air freight revenues swelled in 2020 with the pandemic and extraordinary demand for PPE. With commercial passenger aircraft making up approximately 40% of total air cargo capacity, the pandemic upended air freight forwarding, and rates surged albeit on lower overall volumes.

Overall, ITM realized a 19.2% gross revenue gain in 2020 expanding to $70 billion. While having a lower growth rate than overall gross revenue, due to a tight carrier capacity market, net revenue increased a healthy 11.4% to $24.6 billion.

The asset-heavy Dedicated Contract Carriage (DCC) 3PL segment had the second highest net revenue growth of the four 3PL segments with just 0.3% to $20 billion. Gross revenue declined 2%. The negative effect of COVID made 2020 a volatile and lower-volume year versus 2019 when DCC net revenues grew 12.1%.

The non-asset based Domestic Transportation Management (DTM) segment includes Freight Brokerage which is 83% of segment revenues and Managed Transportation which accounts for 17%. In 2020, 3PLs scrambled to find carrier capacity to meet shipper demand. Gross revenue increased 9.9% to $91.2 billion, but net revenue decreased 1.8% to $13.2 billion as volatility in motor carrier capacity quickly increased spot market rates compressing segment gross margins by 1.7%.

Rapid growth in e-commerce fulfillment could not offset the loss of business-to-business related activity as overall revenues for the Value-Added Warehousing and Distribution (VAWD) 3PL segment sagged in 2020 versus its 9% growth 2019. VAWD net revenues declined 1.1% to $35.7 billion.

Total 3PL segment net revenues (gross revenues less purchased transportation) grew 2.1% to $93.5 billion reflecting gross margin compression due to a volatile carrier sourcing market and transportation management 3PLs spending more to secure hard-to-find carrier capacity. The overall gross margin for all segments declined from 44% to 41%.

Global Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Market revenues reached $962 billion in 2020 resulting in a meager 0.1% increase over 2019 versus the U.S. 3PL Market which saw 8.8% year-over-year growth. As with the U.S., the ITM segment led the way due to COVID-19 response.

The 3 Most Critical Tenets of Leadership

The 3 Most Critical Tenets of Leadership

The PIERCE™ Model for Performance

The PIERCE™ Model for Performance

The PIERCE™ Model's 3 purposes of all policies

The 3 Purposes of all Policies

The PIERCE™ Model offers innovative business performance solutions

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — The Performance Improvement Ethics Risk and Communication Enhancement™ Model known as The PIERCE™ Model offers global businesses an opportunity to use innovative principles designed to fulfill its namesake. By adhering to a series of high-level leadership principles that are distilled through the model’s example, organizations can enjoy greater performance through professional development and top tier leadership concepts across their portfolio.

The PIERCE™ Model addresses each critical area needed for businesses to shatter expectations in performance, risk insulation, communication and overall employee engagement– and has been used as a highly effective application in the following areas:
• Human Resources
• Professional & Organizational Development
• Compliance, Ethics and Overall Risk Insulation
• Strategic Development
• Leadership & Management
• Communication
• Policy
• Business Performance

The PIERCE™ Model's 3 Most Critical Tenets of Leadership.

Judgement sits at the seat of all leadership. And it is your perception that sits at the seat of all Judgement. Things like accountability, integrity, ethics, patience, a bias for action and a host of other qualities are important as well but ultimately, it is all of those attributes that form your ultimate decision or judgement on a matter. When it comes to leadership, it is your judgement that reigns supreme.

Courage to do what is right, despite the climate, internal or external pressures is what it takes to be a profoundly transcendental, innovative and just leader. To make decisions equally when there is no one behind you, the same way as if the whole world is behind you girding you every step of the way. Your judgement will always be compromised if you lack courage.

Communication. It is impossible to be a great leader and a poor communicator. Communication must be administered in a way that ensures the highest level of understanding. And by its very nature rebukes misunderstandings as a result of its content, context and delivery. Quality communication ensures positive change through action. Also, understanding highly effective, diverse and multi-tiered approaches on how to communicate effectively to varying audiences is critical to yielding results.

Through these concepts, a heightened accountability posture, better decision making culture that ensures organizations operate well within their risk tolerances and a culture of greater performance is achieved.

About the architect: Solomon Carter is the architect of The PIERCE™ Model. He leads the Physicians Group Practices, Patient Financial Services Office of Professional Development at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta and is a special advisor to the Vice President. He also serves as the Executive Director of All Power in His Hands Christian Mission which is an aid organization that serves and operates in Haiti. Solomon is also the architect of the COVID-19 Communications Pallet for Government Leaders, Policy and Healthcare Professionals which is a communications mainframe designed to bring systemization and uniformity to the initial COVID response for greater efficiency and timeliness in the sharing of critical data. His COVID work was inspired in part, by his work in Haiti during the cholera outbreak. His thought leadership is regularly featured in The Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) as well as the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA).

TITLE: The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi Endorses The Steinberg Law Group as the Best Asbestos Law Firm – Experience/Resources/Results

PASCAGOULA, MISSISSIPPI, USA, August 31, 2021 / — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to those stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal and/or medical options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with an attorney from The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps win the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2021 were exposed decades ago.

Fortunately, Mississippi does not contain any naturally occurring asbestos deposits. However, Mississippi residents should be wary of the heightened risks of asbestos exposure in the oil & gas, power plant and shipbuilding industries, to name a few. Risky occupations for asbestos exposure include welders, electricians, mechanics, gas fitters, dock workers, demolition workers, chemical workers, carpenters and boiler operators.
