we live in truly exceptional times.
As our world and lives are being rocked by disruptions following the global spread of the novel corona virus, the uncertainties for the future remain plenty and the world as we know it might change significantly over the coming months.
However, transportation, shipping and logistics remain an essential part of global trade and the backbone of mankind’s prosperity since centuries. Our industry will no doubt see changes and challenges from the outbreak, accelerating the need to reinvent ourselves and the way we are doing business.
Even if we have to rely on digital means these days, as we are thrown into isolation and remote working, bringing people together, sharing ideas and strengthening relationships with the right partners, remains essential to overcome any challenge.
We are certain that the world and our members will get through the current difficulties and look forward to bring everyone together after the storm in beautiful Porto.
See you this November in Porto, stay safe!
