MGN Logistics: A True Logistics Solution Provider Catering to Global Business Ambitions

Today’s freight market is ultra-competitive, and ‘survival of the fittest’ is the rechanting mantra. With consumers all over the world demanding greater varieties in products at the cheapest costs possible, companies are scrambling to bolster their supply chains and fulfill the ‘all-important’ customer.

Meanwhile, driver shortages, capacity imbalances, government regulations, and now, the ongoing pandemic are adding pressure to already strained supply chains and continue to impact transportation costs.

Using E-signatures and digital agreements to enhance hybrid working

Hybrid Working is reshaping not only the future of work but also the present. Ronan Copeland, GVP General Manager, EMEA, DocuSign explores how the right digital tools drive employees to create, innovate, and collaborate better.
