Webinar: Strengthening supply chain resilience in Europe

Mobility in Europe will suffer from a higher risk exposure given the increasing occurrences of natural catastrophes. Very much fuelled by climate change, smaller but costly catastrophes are on the rise and, hence, companies need to get better prepared when it comes to transporting goods.

Join our webinar on Tue, 28 May 2019, 10:00 CET to find answers to these and more questions.
