Latest Logistics Indicators; What was the impact of Sandy? Middle East Air Growth; ND appoint 2 non-French Directors
We are always aiming to please here at eyefortransport. This week, as online shopping reaches new heights during Black Friday & Thanksgiving, we are happy to provide the best possible newsletter delivery service available by sending this to you a day early (not even Amazon can compete with our 'day-before-delivery').
I have also decided to add a line or two below each article headline to give you more of an understanding of what the actual story is about before clicking through; as I realised that some of our headlines were a little cryptic….let me know your thoughts, or whether you would rather I reverted back to just the simple headline.
To all our American readers (and I believe you make up over half the 15,000 subscribers) we wish you a truly Happy Thanksgiving.
