From here to there, but so much happens in between.
Many consumers may take for granted how the things they use every day get to them, but businesses involved in the transportation industry appreciate the complexity of the world’s transportation system. From river barges to intercontinental air cargo, from interstate semi-trucks to bicycle couriers, the world of transportation can be difficult to navigate. The competing interests of shippers, carriers, brokers, forwarders, customers, various governmental entities, modal competitors and, of course, the public all have an interest in moving goods and people efficiently, cleanly and safely from where the cargo is to where it needs to go.
