In Part 1, Mike King and guests explore freight technology take-up and the latest M&A activity. They also ask if we are now seeing the normalisation of freight rates, and if the scaling back of ocean and air ambitions by some integrators and carriers are a sign of things to come.

Are you trying to decarbonise your supply chain without partnering with stakeholders? If so, in Part 2 of this podcast you’ll hear why you should think again.
