DSV catches up with Kuehne – the two American stars lag
There has been some hoo-ha on LinkedIn over Expeditors, and whether its cyber-attack had been under-reported.
It’s very difficult to report on cyber-attacks – not only are companies difficult to get hold of, both because communications are down and because they are really busy (and really don’t want the publicity), but there is an uncomfortable ethical dimension too.
