Shifting global markets. Increasing customer expectations. Digitized operations and data-driven decisions. The future prosperity of the transportation and logistics sector depends on its capacity to evolve.
PwC’s 2018 Holiday Outlook report reveals findings from our national survey of 2,071 consumers, offering details about where and when consumers will shop, what drives their purchasing decisions, their holiday travel and movie-going plans, and how retailers are preparing for the season.
Economic growth in 2018 is poised to be the strongest since 2005, which translates into positive consumer sentiment, thus stimulating further growth and signaling a strong holiday shopping season.
Although FY18 continues to track ahead of FY17 in terms of volume and value of Transportation and Logistics (T&L) deals, Q318 was the lowest volume quarter of the last three years and approaching the lowest quarter in terms of deal value over the same period.
