Ti's Global Freight Forwarding Update examines mid-year market growth, the effect of the US/China trade war and advances in supply chain technologies, providing a comprehensive, up-to-date picture of the Global Freight Forwarding landscape.
The global freight forwarding industry is undergoing massive change - Ti recently reported that the global freight forwarding market contracted by 1.4% in H1 and is expected to contract by 1.3% in 2019 - the worst performance since the global financial crisis. With similar stories within air freight and sea freight, Ti's mid-year report is essential reading for those seeking to gain an understanding of what is causing this decline and which markets and regions are the most affected.
The report looks at the effect of the US/China trade war on country and market growth, whilst also assessing technology and the role of software providers within the market. Are forwarders still the 'slow adopters' of technology as in previous years or are they now adapting and responding to technological advances? Which software solutions are they adopting and how is this affecting the industry?
Finally, the report looks at the digital freight landscape - what are the roles of digital forwarders and digital marketplaces? Which companies offer digital services within the international air and sea freight sector? What technologies are forwarders/marketplaces using and what specific services do they provide? And how are carriers reacting - are they offering their own booking and quotation services?
