Asia Pacific — the driving force behind the global logistics industry

The logistics market in Asia Pacific is highly complex and fragmented. The region is dominated by China and Japan, one country undeveloped and fast growing, the other mature but stagnating. In addition, an array of up and coming consumer and production markets have emerged: Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia to name but a few.

Distributing product across such a contrasting mix of markets faces challenges which are unheard of and little understood in North America and Europe. In addition to a variety of barriers to trade, quality of transport infrastructure is often inconsistent or even non-existent. Ports, airports and roads suffer from congestion, leading to additional supply chain costs. Many countries are still not able to provide a stable commercial and legal environment.

Despite this, the region presents fantastic opportunities for investors. Rising disposable income has led to the growth of domestic consumer markets; global manufacturers continue to out-source production to the region attracted by lower costs; and the logistics supply side has plenty of potential for consolidation and mergers and acquisitions for major logistics companies to exploit.
