We believe the world of logistics and supply chain is entering a third wave of growth. In the first wave, Leland Stanford ushered in the railroad era when he drove the Golden Spike into Promontory, Utah in 1869, creating the first coast-to-coast railroad. In the second wave, Malcolm McLean spearheaded the steamship era when he retrofitted an oil tanker to pioneer the first container ship in 1956. In the third wave, we are witnessing the convergence of logistics and technology, fueled by the “Amazon effect.”
