The Logistics Industry really is truly Global!
We cannot help but be aware of the global impact of the pandemic, and the effect on the global supply chains. This is big business and will only get bigger!
We will begin to see the emergence of much-awaited trade deals as the world begins to open up again – an example is A trade deal between Britain and New Zealand which could see both countries ditch tariffs as high as 10 per cent on a range of high-quality products. The UK’s world-famous fashion industry sold £30m-worth of clothes to New Zealand last year. Cars are the UK’s biggest export to New Zealand, with £133 million-worth sold last year.[i]
Supply chains will potentially be impacted by factors in the developing world, including the expansion of Chinese influence, conflict zones and natural disasters.[ii]
“The big players are planning ahead.”
Logistics UK Report 2020 shows that goods exported from the UK to the rest of the world increased by 13.6% in 2019, and those imported to the UK increased by 6%. This trend has been in a steady increase since 2016 and can only continue.
The big players are planning ahead – with the acquisition of Global Integrated Logistics, DSV becomes a global top-three player in the freight forwarding industry with an expected combined revenue of roughly $26 billion and 75,000 employees worldwide. “Our future will be built around businesses, technology and investment that expand access to global trade and make supply chains faster, smarter, greener, fairer and more efficient and resilient.”[iii]
