No Time for Logistics Companies to Put on the Brakes in the Automotive Market

London — July 16, 2009 — Despite the catastrophic meltdown the global automotive market has endured, opportunities exist for logistics companies that can react fast enough to a savage rationalization of the auto industry, according to a new report from industry research firm Transport Intelligence (Ti).

The automotive logistics industry has endured a catastrophic meltdown in volumes over the past year, Ti notes in the report, "Global Automotive Logistics 2009." Logistics companies are struggling to deal with the consequences of a slump in production and sales, and many — especially in the finished vehicle logistics market — have gone out of business.
