Companies are still recovering from the shipping and logistic turmoil caused by the pandemic. With a possible global recession, inflation at a four-decade high, fewer resources, and mass layoffs occurring among many technology and supply chain companies, having a structured roadmap for 2023 will be vital.
In our upcoming webinar, "Build a Supply Chain Roadmap in the Face of an Economic Downturn," we will share findings from a recent study we did with FreightWaves on how freight forwarders are planning to prioritize technology investments in 2023.
We talk to freight forwarders every day that are still reeling from ongoing disruptions while trying to make a plan to compete this year and beyond.
In partnership with FreightWaves, we surveyed freight forwarders about their technology investments over the last two years, their customers' technology expectations, and where they plan to invest in 2023. We surveyed more than 100 logistics professionals across North America about the following topics:
• Change in investment over the last two years
• Technology priorities for automation
• Technology priorities for customers
• Planned technology investments over the next 12 months
Despite the forecasted economic downturn, freight forwarders are still prioritizing investments in tech. The survey found that respondents are investing in a wide variety of technologies more than ever — everything from visibility to risk management.

Chain.io Integrates Supply Chain Technology
According to our research with FreightWaves, freight forwarders plan to invest heavily in supply chain automation next year. And with an investment in automation technology comes a need for integrations between new software and the forwarder's legacy systems. If you're a freight forwarder investing in tech next year, Chain.io can help you connect your systems so you can continue to focus on growing your business.
Data should not live in silos. It needs to be accessible to the right person, at the right time, and in the right place, or you'll be getting a fraction of the value from your investments.
At Chain.io, we automate best practices and change how forwarders leverage customer data. Supply chain experts built our platform, so we know what your data means, and we can connect your ecosystem faster than internal teams or generic integrations platforms.
