If suppliers in China fail to pick up freight containers to fill an order for MediaShop, Marcel Schneider gets an alert via a digital freight system, allowing the retailer to reach out and fix the problem swiftly, reports Reuters.

“It was like being in a tunnel where you had only a limited view of...

M&A radar: DSV Panalpina – $5bn of added value on a nuisance

Quick and dirty: there are things that are occasionally joyful and disturbing to watch, and one of them in the past few days has been the share price action of DSV Panalpina (DSV PAN).
Which, on the day the Danish 3PL reported solid annual results last week, Wednesday 10 February, was little changed, yet as soon as the bullish M&A remarks of management were digested (the day after) started to rally …

Supply chain radar: DSV Panalpina – ‘absolutely beautiful’

After last week’s action, the usual Monday update from DSV Panapina (DSV PAN) concerning weekly buybacks was significantly less entertaining, let alone relevant, than the latest insider talk about its upcoming numbers due next Wednesday, 10 February.
