Abstract: In this thesis, we concentrate on using the strategic profit model (SPM) and Economic Value-Added (EVA) to measure shareholder value for the 3PL providers.In chapter 2, we use the SPM and EVA models to develop the drivers of shareholder value of a 3PL. We apply these models, in Chapter 3, to three competitors of the freight forwarding sector of the 3PL industry, Exel, Expeditors and Eagle Global Logistics (EGL). Chapter 4 studies the impact of outsourcing on the shareholder value of the two parties involved in the partnership, namely the manufacturer/ retailer and their 3PL provider. A set of criteria for choosing a customer is developed. 3PL providers can use these criteria to determine the kind of customer to partner with. Finally, in chapter 5, we study the impact of an emerging technology, radio frequency identification (RFID), on the shareholder value of a 3PL provider.
