In the digital age, the role of freight forwarders is being called into question. How can freight forwarders adapt, and what does their changing role mean for the rest of the market? 

Our panel will discuss: 

  • How do forwarders define their role, their territory? 
  • How do shippers, 3PLs and carriers define forwarders’ role? 
  • Where’s the balance to ensure forwarders remain vital while bringing harmony to the supply chain? 
  • While forwarders’ roles have expanded, their method of compensation has not. How can forwarders be equitably compensated? 
  • Are freight forwarders prepared for the industry’s expanding innovation and use of technology? What/where are the costs for getting up to speed?
