Logistics services are increasingly outsourced and subcontracted to specialists or logistics partners such as freight forwarders Modern freight forwarders provide comprehensive service from point of origin to destination These may include transport, warehousing, packaging, inventory control and even security Logistics has critical role in creating and maintaining competitive advantage Cost and quality of service by the logistics service provider is extremely important Many products have a life cycle or have to meet a production schedule deadline Delay in delivery is not acceptable

12 Provision of Logistics Services in Pakistan
Logistics services are mainly provided by freight forwarders Many are not sufficiently well organized to provide a comprehensive range of services Qualifications and level of professional competence needs improvement to meet requirements of modern supply chain PIFFA is doing commendable work by conducting courses for training of freight forwarders Some regulatory arrangement is required to ensure satisfactory provision of logistics services
