The United States is the largest medical device market in the world and the final mile delivery of high-value medical equipment is the #1 challenge in transporting these products to hospitals and medical offices. Your installers are set up and your project managers have dedicated weeks of time coordinating the move. Then, your medical equipment doesn’t show up on time or it arrives damaged to your customer. In the medical device industry, this can all lead to extra headaches, extra costs, and extra damage to your brand’s reputation, especially when these failures continue to happen. Finding the right logistics partner in today’s world of complex supply chains is key to your success and your sanity.

As we near the end of 2020, we see fresh opportunities for carefully crafted phishing campaigns. The coronavirus vaccine has spurred a few of its own, and that is on top of the already heavy flood of holiday phishing attempts. From fake Christmas parties to gift card offers from your favorite retailers, the attempts to infiltrate your network are steadily pouring in. That fake link or attached file may be what brings your operations to a crashing halt. As we have seen recently, no person, organization, or industry is immune. Transportation is a prime target as it impacts the infrastructure of so many other industries. If we want to “keep on truckin’,” then we need to protect more than just our rigs.
On January 1, 2021, Britain will be on its own. UK’s Brexit transition period with the European Union will expire. Many hope this transition will be extended as COVID-19 has had an impact on everyone’s ability to hammer out the new processes and agreements, but this extension is not likely to happen. Britain’s decision to leave the EU has a global impact – stock market prices, travel plans, the movement of cargo, and even fishing rights on international waters have all been affected. While there are opposing viewpoints on whether these effects have been positive or negative, no one can argue that this has not been a source of tremendous stress for the past decade. Leaders from the UK and EU have intensive meetings scheduled during Week 50, but their interests are quite divergent, and agreement is going to be challenging.
