The routeique team arrived in Greece this week, and we’ve been enjoying spending our free time exploring the natural and historical beauty of the country. We started our adventure in Athens, where we took some time between meetings to explore the archeological sites around the city. This weekend we hope to explore some of the islands around the country.
Greece has several unique logistical challenges presented by the geography of the country. With hundreds of islands, mountainous terrain, and dense urban centres, Greek logistics require multi-channel shipping options including trains, over-land, and by water. The age of the towns and cities here often mean that the city planning began prior to the use of cars and other large vehicles. This can make delivery into dense urban centres even more challenging due to the narrow and winding streets.
We’re excited to learn more about the logistics and transportation industry here in Greece throughout our travels here.
