How did the Global Freight Forwarding Industry perform in 2009?

The Freight Forwarding industry went into freefall in 2009 as global manufacturers and retailers struggled to cope with a huge inventory overhang, causing them to severely cut back on orders from Asian suppliers.

Shipping lines and air cargo operators were left with enormous over-capacity - resulting in plummeting rates. The consequences of falling volumes and rates left most forwarders desperately cutting overhead, although some were able to benefit from increased gross margin due to their increased buying power in the market.

All regions were affected, but none as badly as Europe and North America. Asia, buoyed by China's massive inward investment stimulus package, fared better than the rest of the world. Asian - and to a lesser extent African and South American - exporters became more focused around the Chinese market.

...And in 2010?

By the end of 2009 the environment had already started to change. A stronger peak shipping season continued through to the Chinese New Year and beyond. Lack of capacity has now become the main issue, with forwarders starting to complain that they are being squeezed by high carrier rates. Within the space of the year the market has turned a full 180 degrees.
