Every January, Peerless Research Group sends a survey to the readers of Logistics Management. Since last year’s occurred right before the impact of the pandemic, this is the first chance to see how it’s affected the industry.

“Prioritizing information technology investments is consistent with what we see among our clients,” says Derewecki. “Investment in technology and software can help you with issues like maximizing productivity, and in establishing good data and metrics.”
Saenz and Derewecki add that among their clients, the mood is quite optimistic, with many moving forward with projects, and most every client assessing how automation and software can help them cope with pressures around rapid order fulfillment without having to bump up staffing levels. “Among our clients, everyone at least wants to consider the automation that is out there,” says Saenz. “They’re itching to see what makes sense for them.”
