Service you expect, in an unexpected location

A major attraction of FreightWaves’ The Future of Supply Chain live event in Northwest Arkansas on May 9-10 will be the seven-minute live demos. Here’s a preview of one of those demos.

There have been hubs for developers, and software engineers pop up all around the world who, through a stable internet connection, can be a massive asset to any company’s infrastructure.
