The global supply chain and logistics industries have had a tumultuous two years as it has faced immense challenges in the forms of unbalanced supply and demand, equipment and staff shortages, port congestion and closures, high freight costs, component shortages, fluctuations in fuel prices as well as ongoing geopolitical instability.
These unprecedented disruptions have adversely affected business competitiveness and exposed the vulnerability of our current supply chains, leaving many companies feeling battered with regard to reliability, pushing them to re-evaluate their logistics strategies.
Currently, the global ports are slowly recovering and freight rates are steadily declining. At the same time China has, after 3 years of strict Covid-19 policies fully opened their borders again, with no quarantine or control measures for imported cargo. However, even with these past months' improvements there are still plenty of uncertainties and challenges.
