  • What Maersk hopes to achieve in starting a venture fund,
  • The challenges facing the freight brokerage industry (… and how today’s technologies hold the potential to make it radically more efficient),
  • What made Maersk move from meeting Loadsmart to leading our latest financing just four months later, and
  • How Maersk can now leverage Loadsmart for FTL services.
