issue 9

CAAS has increased the level of input from freight forwarders in the magazine – everyone wants to hear what their customers are thinking, after all.

And something else worth keeping an eye on is cyber crime, an issue discussed at the recent CNS Partnership Conference, as recorded in our CNS Conference report.
