The world is entering a new era for international trade, driven by geopolitical shifts, the demands of dealing with the extra strain on freight networks caused by the rapid growth in eCommerce, the challenges faced by Europe and the rest of the world because of Brexit, the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic and the advent of a new leader of the World Trade Organization. Logistics and fulfilment firms are under pressure to make location decisions that enable cost-effective and smooth linking of customers and suppliers, while continuing to compete to deliver on time to customers, to optimise operation and distribution costs, and recruit available and skilled workforces.
Many large corporations and SMEs are focused on strategic, time and cost-efficient locations to grow their businesses. These international trade locations and hubs must offer global connectivity while responding to new business models and geopolitical pressures.
On the Strait of Gibraltar, Tanger Med is building on its position at the crossroads of major maritime streams and its proximity to global markets in Europe, West Africa and North America, acting as a connection and logistics hub for 180 ports around the world.
The Financial Times and Tanger Med were delighted to present ‘A new era in international trade: Challenges and opportunities in logistics and fulfilment’. This webinar was the second in a series of online briefing events to analyse challenges and present opportunities for logistics and fulfilment firms targeting the global market.
