Logistics in the News – Robotics, e-Commerce Giants, and Infographics

Ok. To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve found it a bigger challenge to bring you a weekly round-up of the news, than I thought it would be when I started doing these.

Logistics in the News – Week 13

It was a very busy week, both for me as well as for interesting logistics news.

Logistics in the News – Week 7

There was quite some snow this morning, so it took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to work, instead of 45. The sun was shining, the farm lands I was driving through were white and looked beautiful in the morning sun, and I had some interesting podcasts to listen to. Time well spent. And now on to what caught […]

Logistics in the News – Week 6

The concept itself is not new, it’s new on this blog. 🙂 Every workday between 14h00 and about 18h00 CET a selection of the best Logistics and Supply Chain news and background stories is tweeted through @LogisticsMatter. What I will (try to) do is give a quick weekly round up of […]
