eyefortransport Weekly Newsletter 19th December 2013

Top 10 articles of 2013; Rudolph Logistik new warehouse; FedEx results

This will be our last newsletter of 2013, and as such I have authored an article on the top 10 most popular stories that have featured on eyefortransport in the last 12 months. You may be surprised by the topic of the winning article, so make sure you take a look for an interesting recap. 
 

As it is the holiday season, we just had to include a press release we received from Gazeley about a new warehouse for Rudolph Logistik, but I do think Santa was cutting-it fine if he needed more warehouse capacity for this year’s Christmas rush.
 
I would like to personally wish you and your family a lovely holiday season, and a happy new year.
