do you see technology making business easy? With the economy in recession, the business that proves to be responsive to client query, complaints or other needs will have a clear edge over the competitors. The areas which need to be focused on are websites, tracking system, marketing automation, communication and extraction/analysing of data.
Not as yet but opportunities are being explored for expansion and making our presence conspicuous in CFS and warehousing services for both air and sea cargoes.
