Bridg­ing global trade

Cargo Talk - - Report -

With the theme of ‘Lo­gis­tics Bridg­ing Global Trade’, FIATA World Congress 2017 aims to be the op­ti­mal plat­form to share in­for­ma­tion and high­light ground-break­ing is­sues CARGOTALK per­tain­ing to the in­dus­try. in this edi­tion fo­cuses on a cru­cial sub­ject, about in­volv­ing more young pro­fes­sion­als in the in­dus­try to gar­ner a phe­nom­e­nal change. As in­ter­na­tional busi­ness be­comes in­creas­ingly bor­der­less, more com­pa­nies are ex­pand­ing their mar­kets into the global arena, thereby sig­nif­i­cantly in­creas­ing the de­mand for sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics sup­port.

The coun­try’s di­verse cli­mate al­lows it to be­come one of the world largest pro­duc­ers of fruits and veg­eta­bles, but due to the lack of ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture, In­dia is los­ing a good amount of rev­enue from per­ish­ables. CARGOTALK

throws light on the same. The cur­rent edi­tion also delves on is­sues like in­te­grated end-to-end lo­gis­tics trans­porta­tion where dif­fer­ent modes of trans­port are ef­fi­ciently linked with each other. With­out com­pro­mis­ing on safety and speed, the ser­vice provider se­lects most ap­pro­pri­ate and eco­nomic mode(s) of trans­porta­tion dur­ing this whole process. On the mar­itime front, the ship­ping lines and ports are push­ing their lim­its to en­able safe and se­cure move­ment of car­gos. The in­dus­try is also con­tin­u­ously look­ing for lat­est and up­dated tech­nol­ogy to make the cargo clear­ance ef­fort­less, speedy and ef­fi­cient.

There is also a de­mand for in­tel­lec­tual abil­i­ties in the cargo and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try. And on these lines, there is a feel­ing of op­ti­mism to over­come the chal­lenges and up­lift in­dus­try to the in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. More­over, it is also vi­tal to keep rein­vent­ing to add more value in the seg­ment.
