Please join us for an in-depth introduction to the contents of Disrupting Logistics - a book portraying the disrupting forces at play in the logistics industry, bringing to light key trends and developments, and showcasing examples of how digital disruption is currently reshaping a century-old industry. Logistics is the invisible force behind the global economy, influencing and providing a lens into all economic activities, and as such, also offers a glimpse into the future.

Chapters written by respected experts in the field describe how new technologies such as autonomous vehicles, blockchain, Internet of things (IoT), and state-of-the-art freight management solutions are fundamentally changing supply chain solutions. Special emphasis is placed on promising start-ups and venture capital firms around the world that are now investing in the future of logistics.
