DUBLIN, June 05, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6rzvbd/global_contract) has announced the addition of the "Global Contract Logistics 2015" report to their offering.

- Inefficiencies throughout the industry have left it vulnerable to disruption' from new business models and technology
- Automation will play a significant role in shaping the industry through drones, autonomous vehicles and warehouse robotics.

- China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Colombia and Nigeria are all estimated to have experienced superior contract logistics growth rates year-on-year.
