A More Thoughtful Article on Capacity
JULY 12, 2015
This, from BCG, is a much more thoughtful article on the true capacity issues in transportation. The issue is NOT trucking capacity as that can easily be solved with private fleets, some technology, moving DCs to more efficient locations etc. The real issue is around port capacity, rail capacity, infrastructure and consumer demands. These cannot be moved around. And this is what companies have to be thinking about now assuming they want to stay around.
