As 2021 comes to close, another 12 months of intensive supply chain challenges is now behind us. Wild fluctuations in demand, Brexit disruption, record-high shipping rates and a Suez Canal blockage are just a few of the major themes in what has been a tough sequel to 2020.
Thankfully, with the help of the industry specialists that write for us and speak to us, we’ve been able to shed light on these developments and reach out to more people than ever before. Trans.INFO’s readership has grown to an all time yearly high, while our English-language service for readers across the globe has skyrocketed by over 50% year-on-year.
Of course, this wouldn’t have been possible without all of our highly-valued contributors, partners and sponsors.
So in this post, we’d like to pay tribute to all of those who contributed to Trans.INFO in 2021 from across the logistics and supply chain spectrum, whether it be from the road transport, rail freight, shipping, tech or supply chain sectors.
A large part of our success in 2021 is down to the quality and range of contributions we have received from industry experts.
The most prolific among those has been David Food, who has touched on almost every industry topic imaginable in the last 12 months doing his bi-weekly Prophetic Technology blog. Marek Różycki of Last Mile Experts has also been a regular contributor via our weekly Last Mile Brief vlog.
