But it continues, leading to a record build-up of uncompleted orders and rising prices as the economy starts to recover. Should we expect a re-balancing of freight and increases in shipping costs?
This Week’s Must Read is an insight piece from Bloomberg about Container shipping rates around the world.
The pandemic certainly has slowed supply chain traffic and has thrown the logistics industry off balance. However, by adopting digital business models and more sustainable supply chains, logistics companies can now play a bigger role in the shopping experience.
The key to success in the transportation business is offering the most cost-effective, flexible, and efficient services. What are the current trends in the transportation industry in 2021?
Transportation is a critical industry for the growth of our economy and critical to even maintaining our basic living standards. Still, it’s also an industry that’s crucially under-served by modern technology.Will digital transformation allow transport to be synchronized with the modern world?
The Covid pandemic has had a significant impact on the transportation industry due to the high global demand for online shopping, leading to the need to adapt operations and supply chains quickly.
