CHICAGO—Nearly every firm which sells anything online has begun reevaluating its supply chain. The retail store, which functioned as the middleman for generations, is no longer as important, and companies need to figure out the best ways to ship directly to their customers. Colliers International has responded to that need by launching a new consulting team dedicated to supply chain and logistics. The new group will augment the work done by an existing national group of brokers dedicated to logistics and transportation.
