DHL's views on 3D printing; 3PL Summit attracts big hitters; Monthly Logisitics Indicators

An entire smorgasbord of offerings this week. Highlights include yet more insightful articles on how 3D printing could be used in the logistics industry…but this time the article is authored by DHL, which shows that the industry is looking seriously into this technology.

I would also like to draw your attention to the 3PL Summit and CSCO Forum in Chicago on June 18-20. This event attracts the CEO’s/President’s of most major LSPs and senior executives from leading manufacturers – I do hope I will get the chance to meet some of you there.

Lastly, I would like to invite you to join me on Linkedin at http://www.linkedin.com/pub/chris-saynor/1/502/84a
