The logistics industry has been rapidly digitizing in recent years. Flexport is a company with two sides. On the one hand, it is a technology built freight forwarder, transporting goods by land and sea for their customers. In addition, Flexport has built a purpose-built cloud software and data analytics platform, offering their services today to more than 10,000 customers in more than 100 countries. What does this mean for the Port of Rotterdam and other players in the ecosystem? Does it change traditional roles and relationships in the sector and what can other players learn from this?
Jan van Casteren, Head of Europe, of Flexport tells us all about how Flexport is making the logistics sector smarter.
