It’s that time of month again when Georgia Logistics release their annual monthly statistics and figures, which are always worth a read. We are also gearing up for the 11th 3PL Summit and CSCO Forum in Chicago on June 18-20 – over 350 execs are already signed-up and we expect 600 in total. I am biased, but it is my favorite event of the year for the quality of attendees, great topics, a fantastic hotel and the interesting city in Chicago where it is held – I hope to once again meet a number of you there.
