Welcome to the 2nd edition of the logistics news in review.

Following last week, a lot has happened in the global economy that will impact trade – and while the worst is yet to come, there is still a lot of pawns moving around on the board.

I have added a few new categories of news so as to offer a bit more breadth, and I will continue to add categories as news stories surface (this week I could not find warehousing or technology news stories).

Feel free to send me news stories you want to have added.
