WELCOME TO MOVE IT LIKE…

Freight and logistics, like most industries, are nothing without the people who drive them, the people who innovate and pour their heart and soul into them. Each month we interview an industry personality and find out what drives them and how they got to where they are now. We’ve talked to industry stalwarts such as Stephen Blyth at Delamode, entrepreneurs such as Hilary Devey at Pall-Ex and innovative newcomers such as Idriss al Rifai at fetchr in U.A.E.. In the magazine itself the subject gets front-page exposure (and more on the contents page) and a six-page tailored Q&A alongside their company photography, as well as a separate PDF (and/or printed booklet) to send to their clients or keep in the office.
