Business, at its very core, is all about supply and demand, and demands have changed.
In a digital age consumers and retailers want a wider variety of goods, faster, with greater ease and of a higher quality than ever before. The global logistics and shipping industry is working hard to meet or even exceed these demands.
Planes, trains, cars and ships are swiftly starting to shift gear and turn autonomous. Pizza is arriving in people’s homes via drone, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting commerce and sharing resources to consolidate and exchange data in a far superior way.
Logistics and shipping no longer simply involve getting things from A-B. They are central to business and play ever-increasing roles in satisfying consumer expectations, by land, sea or air. This day helped delegates see this dynamic sector in a totally new light.
The event examined how to secure stability and opportunity in a changing world and showcased international market opportunities. Delegates met with future partners, buyers and investors and worked to develop profitable, meaningful relationships.
