HONG KONG, May 25 (FAM) – One of the highest-profile companies of a new generation of technology-powered freight forwarders, Flexport, this week unveiled a plan to create a worldwide network of physical logistics centres.

Despite much speculation and debate about whether digital or ‘virtual’ freight forwarders will soon take over from their traditional ‘physical’ freight forwarding counterparts, this latest move by Flexport is consistent with observations among freight forwarders that even the most technologically advanced ‘disruptors’ or new-generation freight forwarders will require a physical network to support their businesses.
