Cards are being reshuffled in the global supply chain

Pointing out that trade disputes create the new norms of global trade, DHL Global Forwarding Turkey CEO Ingo-Alexander Rahn said, “These trade wars, which change the traditional transportation models of our business volume, will also change the shape of the supply chain.”

Explaining his expectations for the logistics industry in 2020, Rahn said, “2020 expectations seem moderate at best for global growth. We have all witnessed the beginning of the trade war between China and the USA, and we believe that this phenomenon will continue for a while. These trade disputes are creating new norms of global trade. These tensions are affecting global trade, and we see this in our own global trade barometer. This trade war has made things even more volatile and changed the traditional transportation patterns of our business. Another impact will be changes in the shape of the supply chain. “Here lies the risk for some economies and the opportunity for some other economies,” he said.

“Partial came to the fore in the sea”

Pointing out that the demand for partial cargo in maritime transportation is accelerating, Rahn said, “The decrease in import volumes and the shrinking of order sizes in maritime transportation indicate that the demand for partial cargo is shifting towards partial container transportation, which provides reliable delivery of small loads at more affordable prices. “Given market expectations, this trend will continue throughout the year,” he said.

“Demand for intermodal has increased”

Rahn stated that the problems on the highway increased the demand for intermodal and said: “We think that many issues such as the deterioration of the foreign trade balance, empty returns from imports, congestion at border gates, passage documents, visa problems of drivers will continue to be on the agenda in road transportation. Especially in the European market, our exporters will continue to be on the agenda.” “In order to be competitive, the increase in intermodal transportation will continue. We expect an increase in intermodal solutions in 2020 and beyond.”

Touching on the transition process to the new airport in air cargo, Ingo-Alexander Rahn said, “We think that there will be operational developments in 2020 by completing the cargo terminals and making all cargo flights entirely from Istanbul Airport. The end of cargo operations at Atatürk Airport will support our operations to become more effective in terms of concentrating on a single airport instead of two airports. “Our warehouse here provides us with an excellent platform to offer advanced integrated services within the cargo terminal.”
