Lufthansa Cargo speak IT; Electronics Supply Chain Trends Released; Logistics Aquisitions

Just a short message from me before I take my family on vacation tomorrow for a week in Menorca. There are a couple of pieces of original research from eft to share this week in the form of a Q&A with Lufthansa Cargo and a report on the survey data we collected about the Hi-Tech and Electronics Supply Chain. So definitely some holiday or weekend reading for you; for myself supply chain research will not be on my holiday reading list, as fingers crossed my 3 young children may allow me some time to read the third book in the ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ trilogy by the Swedish Author Stieg Larsson…..in reality I think I will be building sand-castles and playing in the pool ;0)

Kind Regards,

Chris Saynor  
CEO, eft
