Device Lifecycle Services - Simplified to Highlight Significant Profit Opportunities

March 07, 2012

The demand for smart and connected devices is booming at an exponential rate. With that growth comes increased competition and added complexities that can cloud the opportunities for entering or profiting from the technology industry.

By simplifying a device’s lifecycle it becomes easier to pinpoint where your opportunities lie, and know who to ask for guidance on pursuing them.

Device lifecycles can be deceptively complex; as with many consumer technologies, most people look at their smart phones, tablets and other devices as temporary accessories with no more long-term value than a nearly-expired carton of milk. When they renew their contracts, old devices are exchanged for new ones and never considered again.

As was the case a month ago, the Global Port Tracker report from the National Retail Federation (NRF) and maritime consultancy Hackett Associates is calling for annual import cargo volume gains at United States ports, as retailers gear up for the holiday season.

More than nine months after saying it was not for sale, Long Beach Calif.-based non asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) services provider UTi Worldwide has apparently changed its tune, with the company saying it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Denmark-based global 3PL DSV for $1.35 billion and $7.10 per share.

September carloads—at 1,417,750—were down 4.9 percent—or 72,597 carloads— annually, and intermodal—at 1,365,980 trailers and containers—was up 1.2 percent—or 16,272 trailers and containers.

Slowing global trade and a bloated orderbook of large vessel capacity mean that container shipping is set for another three years of overcapacity and financial pain, according to the latest Container Forecaster report published by global shipping consultancy Drewry.

The NRF is calling for 2015 holiday sales to see a 3.7 percent annual gain to $630.5 billion, which comfortably outpaces the ten-year average of 2.5 percent.
