Intermodal volumes were stronger than their four-week trailing average in week 20, though still down 14% compared to the same period in 2019.

Passport Research: Blockchain in supply chains: a magic cure-all or a lot of work?

While the COVID-19 crisis has led to an abrupt meltdown of major economies, globalization and rapidly evolving consumer behavior ensured the unmitigated expansion of cross-border trade for roughly a decade. Businesses in North America – like retail or electronics – increasingly looked to move their sourcing operations to China and Southeast Asia, due to the …
