Have you ever wondered how citrus fruits make it from the most remote part of South America to cocktail bars in Scandinavia? Or how clothing items make it from one manufacturer into fashion stores all over the world? Now you can see for yourself in less than five minutes.
Copenhagen, 24th February 2012 – Today a new kind of corporate movie sees the light of day. Damco, one of the world’s leading logistics companies, has launched a short movie to showcase how global logistics work.
This movie gives an idea about how you navigate in growth markets and how you manage complex supply chains. And overall: how do you solve the logistical challenges of today, where economies are under pressure and differences in markets are many?
