Transport & Logistics
International business is rapidly changing, with trends towards globalisation, integrated logistics and more powerful information & communication technologies reshaping the traditional methods of global trade.
The rapid growth of e-commerce is driving up demand for transport, and logistics expertise is fast-becoming a key source of competitive advantage for major corporations.
The sector is currently influenced by major dynamics:
- Increased industry consolidation aimed at attaining economies of scale
- Logistic service providers offering value added services and expanding their range, both upstream and downstream in the value chain, to differentiate from competitors.
- A growing number of players are entering into partnerships to take up a position in transport and flow management when they cannot expand their own fleet
- Regulatory pressure geared toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions and controlling urban pollution
