International trade has become the norm for the modern day business. Increased globalisation, access to digital marketplaces and faster modes of transit...the door to endless opportunities has been opened. However, with the instability of carrier finances rampant in the industry, what happens if one or more of them exit the market?
What can be done? How can you ensure that your business can proceed without disruption to your supply chain and increasing costs?
We can offer you a best-in-class carrier programme and, teamed with our understanding of the current financial position of shipping lines, you can be rest assured that your goods will arrive at their intended destination on time and on budget.
With the collapse of the Hanjin shipping company still making waves, those who engage in international freight are calling for greater financial transparency. And, with some large carriers still in financial peril, there is growing concern about another closure which could result in the delay of thousands of goods.
Now, with their products and profit margins on the line, consumers are preparing themselves for the worst - even requesting access to hidden financial documents before entrusting their cargo to a specific liner.
This is hardly an ideal position to be in as a consumer, and many are shortening their supply chains in order to mitigate the current risks.
But what can be done? How can you ensure that your business can proceed without increasing your costs and danger to your goods?
