Transportation and Logistics

Fundamental changes in the transportation and logistics industry demand that companies radically reinvent themselves to succeed. BCG’s logistics consulting and transportation consulting teams help clients embrace digital innovation, restructure, and better serve their customers.

Defending against this industrywide transformation can seem impossible. By contrast, embracing transformation—and outpacing it with a companywide transformation of your own—opens up possibilities for transportation and logistics companies.

Where We Deliver Value in the Transportation and Logistics Industry

Our transportation and logistics consulting team achieves transformations across the postal and parcel, rail, shipping, and logistics industries to help clients:

  • Shape strategy in the pursuit of growth. We help you tailor your operating model and organization to the current realities of the market—and to anticipate the changes you’ll need for the future.
  • Invest continuously in tech, analytics, and capabilities. We help you digitize your business on your own—or partner with disruptive players upending logistics operations and the transportation market.
  • Embrace greener supply chains and technologies. We help navigate new regulations and their implications, such as the shipping fuel regulations in light of IMO 2020. We also move beyond compliance, helping to meet customers’ rising demand for environmentally sustainable services.
  • Deliver service excellence. With our guidance, you can deploy a multichannel strategy to develop and deliver an end-to-end customer journey.
  • Understand and adapt to market dynamics. We help you respond to current trends in trade, tariffs, and protectionism—and anticipate new and emerging shifts.
