The Transport & Logistics sector, which includes the niche sectors of supply chain, transport planning, rail, bus and coach, ports maritime waterways, freight forwarding and aviation, is a diverse sector that plays a major role in the global economy. It enables the movement of goods, services and people as efficiently as possible.
