With that in mind, how do you think Europe’s logistics performed in 2020?

Inbound international shipment volume in Europe grew more in the second half of 2020

Compared to the first half of 2020, inbound international shipment volume within Europe during the second half of 2020 increased by 49%; whereas inbound international shipments entering Europe during the second half of 2020 increased by 23%.
