Digitalization as a Driving Force

DSV’s Managing Director of Norway & Sweden, Morten Sloth Madsen, joined us for an update on the global supply chain with a look back at and predicted logistical impacts, developments, and expectations for the industry.

The past few years of pandemic, political unrest, container shortages, port congestion, geopolitical conflict, and inflationary pressures have exposed vulnerabilities in our supply chains – causing frustration for businesses and consumers alike. As a global player in air, ground and sea logistics, Madsen provided keen insights into the current market and what business leaders need to be highly aware of in the time ahead.
