Wholesale & Retail

Managing your import supply chain is crucial for many organisations, but especially retail organisations that rely on countries like China for the goods they sell. Supply chains are the fibres with which globalisation is woven. Networks of aircraft, ships and railways have tied together businesses in Guangdong, for example, to businesses in New York. This has always been a tricky process to manage, but in recent years it has only gotten more complex.

From American tariffs on Chinese exports, the pandemic, and the Red Sea diversion of 2024. Leading to insufficient capacity, port congestions, strikes, and more.
