Rapid changes in technology, the rise of the global middle class, and the breakdown of traditional industry silos have all contributed to the complexities and opportunities confronting the transportation and logistics sector. What was once an entrepreneurial, regionally based business is now an intricately choreographed dance in which companies must succeed individually while being part of a complex global ecosystem.
This environment marks a dramatic break with the past. Incremental improvement and a transaction mindset are giving way to innovation and strategic partnerships. Cyclical growth of 2 or 3 percent has given way to disruptive growth of 70 percent a year — for those who can successfully capitalize on the shifts under way.
At Egon Zehnder, our Transportation and Logistics Practice partners with both established logistics companies and new market entrants to find the leadership solutions they need to thrive. Our One Firm structure lets us work across industries and sectors with colleagues who have come to us directly from industry. We can help your board grow and adapt and also manage CEO and C-suite succession planning to develop leaders able to scale and flex. We look forward to partnering with you on this journey.
