    Please tell me what looks wrong with the following sentence?

    We specialize in shopper's transportation needs.

    This sentence needs to refer to all shoppers of a store.
    It also needs to point out that we are talking about each of the shopper's individual need.

    This is how I would say what you want to say.


    We specialize in the individual transportation needs of all our shoppers.

    When one is talking about more thyan one shopper, the possessive form is shoppers'.
