Smaller and Smaller Hubs

Smaller and Smaller Hubs

Jan. 31 | It happens fairly regularly: most days of the week, several times a day, we’d hear a rider from Shopee or Lazada call out to our next-door neighbors.   Do they order online this often? I used to ask.   Wrong. Our neighbors aren’t ordering,...

Resiliency and the Animal Spirit

Resiliency and the Animal Spirit

Nov. 22 | Under normal circumstances I would be writing this particular column from Hong Kong, but due to the continuing unrest there it was decided that I would not fly there to take part in the recently concluded Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference, co-organized...

The Movers Are Moving Away

The Movers Are Moving Away

Nov. 8 | On our way back from our extended weekend break, we passed by a newly-built distribution center, with many trucks, seemingly new, parked outside.   Why there are that many trucks lying idle seems unusual. It may be the Undas long weekend, but it...
