Logistics, Freight and Transport disintermediationDisintermediation is the removal of intermediaries in economics from a supply chain, or "cutting out the middlemen" in connection with a transaction. Instead of going through traditional brokerage channels, an agent, logistics control towers, Transport management vendors, and platforms which have some type of intermediary function, shippers may now deal with customers directly. Zendeq is an example of a platform enabling disintermediation. Zendeq, in essence, is a so called logistics and Transport disintermediation platform. Logistics and Transport disintermediation may decrease the total cost of servicing customers and may allow both shippers as well as logistics service providers (2PL and 3PL) to increase profit margins and/or reduce prices. Disintermediation initiated by shippers is often the result of high market transparency, in that buyers are aware of supply prices direct from the manufacturer. Shippers may choose to bypass the middlemen to buy directly from the carriers, and pay less.
