The physical internet is vital for transportation, especially freight flows and logistics. Global logistics are diversifying and multi-channel distribution has become the new normal. This is the case especially recently, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. TRB hosted a recorded session in May that discussed how freight operators can maintain this pace. The presenter identified challenges in freight logistics and recognized opportunities that have arisen due to these challenges.
