The global movement of goods has been severely disrupted in recent years. How can the logistics industry embrace new technologies to solve future crises before they happen?
Digitisation to revolutionise the supply chain
If the past few years have taught us anything, it is that supply chains matter – and they are not as resilient as we thought.
