And when pandemics, combat, allisions and trade wars are thrown in the mix, all bets are off.If you're reading this, it's because you believe that logistics and technology can play a vital role in connecting the companies that connect the world. It also means that you know that tech never really looks like the it does in the PowerPoint deck.We're excited to once more bring together pros from carriers, BCOs, forwarders and more this year to explore logistics technology in the real world. Our theme this year?The Inherent Volatility of Global Freight - Planning and Working Despite...Everything
