"During these times of great uncertainty being able to look for alternative mode of transports, routes or simply new carriers is vital to keep the flow of goods alive. Collaboration is becoming more important than ever in logistics where all the stakeholders need to share the same data to avoid disruptions and bottlenecks. Speed is becoming essential to react to any peak in demand.
