My questions for ANE Logistics:

  • Does a franchised logistics network with digital connectivity lower the barrier to entry?
  • What happens when the volume is greater a network with the same number of nodes and linkages as another?
  • What happens when the geographic density is increased? More nodes and / or more linkages.
