A region of opportunities
The break-up of the Soviet Union has brought about the re-emergence of the independent nation states of Central and Eastern Europe. Over the last decade the nascent market economies have undergone political, social and economic transformation, which has enabled many of them to achieve acceptance as global trading partners. To the initial tranche of eastern European countries acceding to the European Union in 2004 (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) will, in January 2007, be added Bulgaria and Romania. This move will provide new business opportunities for multi-national manufacturers and international retailers, and consequently for the logistics service providers which serve them. The rise of so-called 'near-sourcing' (the location of production facilities to take advantage of low cost labour in regions close to key consumer markets) has resulted in logistics and express companies moving their strategic focus eastwards.
However many challenges remain. Despite years of investment, transport infrastructure across the region still remains at a level well below western standards. Road, rail and air links will need significant additional resources if the region is to be fully integrated into the wider European community. Also in some states, including the two new accession countries, standards of business ethics, security and the overall legislative, regulatory and fiscal environment are still concerns.
