Advanced Fax Server Solutions for the Logistics Industry
Logistics and transportation companies are critical linchpins in nearly every business, supporting supply locally, and on a global scale. While the industry has been on rocky footing recently due to declining expenditures and a dipping percentage of the U.S. gross domestic product, experts have high hopes for the near future.
According to recent statistics, the logistics industry is poised for a considerable upswing:
- Overall, clients spent $1.392 trillion on logistics expenditures in 2016.
- This represented a small decline of 1.5 percent from the previous year.
- Truckload logistics expenditures totaled $269.4 billion.
- Parcel logistics spending, spurred by increasing e-commerce demands, rose 10 percent, and is on track to continue growing.
- Spending on logistical warehouse services modestly increased as well by 1.8 percent.
As exports including grain and coal see increasing demands, experts anticipate similar gains within the logistics industry, predicting a “significant jump” in the coming years.
Keeping up with global fax demands
In many arenas, including logistics, there have been considerable technological disruptions. However, studies show that fax communication – particularly solutions supported by the cloud – is seeing rising demand and overall use.
The IDC discovered that fax usage is experiencing 27 percent year-over-year growth, and will continue to expand by at least 25 percent over the next two years. Because fax continues to be a trusted form of informational exchange, and due to the fact that many organizations across the globe already have it in place, logistics companies must ensure that their IT infrastructures include robust fax capabilities.
