Shipping and Logistics: Who to Follow on Twitter

One of the great things about social media services like Twitter is there is no shortage of information. There’s always a new feed or two to check out or an old favorite you forgot about that’s recently come back to life. If you’re looking for business news and intelligence talk, just start poking around!

Or, if you’d like, we could help you out by giving you a list. Due to the challenges faced by those in this field and in honor of our recent partnership with UPS to bring more working capital to online sellers, we’ll focus this Twitter round-up on the shipping and logistics industry! Here are 40 feeds to check out if you want to know anything and everything about getting an item from one place to another.
