‘Eye-opening’ white paper reveals critical issues in US Customs’ automated environment

More than three years and $1bn dollars over budget, the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) that is supposed to streamline data flow to and from US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) is still plagued by flaws.

Digitisation could make freight forwarders redundant in the next 20 years unless they significantly adapt their business model.
As data in the supply chain becomes increasingly transparent, in a bid for seamless flows of information and cargo, the forwarders’ advantage ebbs, delegates heard at Air Cargo India in Mumbai this week.

Walmart’s earnings disappoint, and it’s pretty much all due to e-commerce

Walmart stock was hammered in the aftermath of this week’s results which disappointed investors and analysts, and as this report from Freightwaves explains, much of that was due to lack of available inventory for e-commerce sales, which “harmed our basic in-stock on more everyday items and our basic in-stock for e-commerce suffered as a result.
