WHAT DID YOU
CLICK ON LAST
s they say, change is the only constant in this world. When change becomes overwhelming
and turns into an avalanche, calling it transformation is perhaps more appropriate.
So as retail progressed from village markets to corner stores to supermarkets and now to

From the farmer carting his produce from the farm to the markets, to pits for cool stores dug

And to finish off, you may like to contemplate how to make logistics an enjoyable career rather than
just a job, and also read an article about leadership and why the number 17 is a significant number.
