This year, GLS Europe was remarkable by opening a new mature area for the maritime segment of the transport industry. This was reflected by its content on critical  IMO 2020, block exemption discussions, market reports, and Digital standardisation. A new paradigm is slowly but surely emerging whereby size performance might not matter as much as your service, value creation and dexterity to make it easy for the client to book your services. GLS definitely to attend now and tomorrow.
