Evolution of the US Logistics Industry

When Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing with the 1913 introduction of the Model T assembly line, he singlehandedly made the automobile affordable and accessible to millions of Americans.  But changing demand decades later gave rise to what came to be known as the Toyota Production System, based on lean inventory principles.  So many innovations have taken place over the years to bring us to today’s level of advanced logistics capability.  A new white paper from Purolator International, “From the Model T to Driverless Vehicles:  Evolution of the U.S. Logistics Industry,” takes a look at some of the most important developments of the last decades, including the role of today’s highly trained logistics professionals.  Please click here to download a complimentary copy of Purolator’s new white paper.
