Europe Logistics

This page hosts coverage dedicated to container shipping and containerized supply chains in Europe, a dynamic market that consists of some of the world's most advanced consumer economies. As such it is home to a number of the world's top container lines such as Maersk Line and CMA CGM. Many of the world's leading freight fowarders and third-party logistics providers, notably Kuehne + Nagel, also hail from Europe, making the continent integral to global supply chains.
