Freight Shipping Industry Concerns

The freight shipping industry has been on a fantastic ride for the last few years. The volume of shipments has increased exponentially and the number of freight forwarders and shipping providers has increased dramatically in order to keep up with demand. Although the freight shipping industry was impacted by the global recession in 2008 with many companies facing bankruptcy or going into receivership, overall the industry has remained bullish. The reason for the strength of the industry is simple businesses and individuals will always need to have their goods and products shipped to their customers.

Since the global marketplace has opened up drastically worldwide, it is now possible for consumers to shop twenty-four hours a day and for e-tailers to remain open in order to meet that demand. Naturally, with constant business being transacted, it means that freight shipping providers will always have work. The biggest problem currently facing the freight forwarders of the world is how to sustain the level of growth that they have been experiencing. It may not seem like a very complex issue, but it is, in fact, one of the most important that the shipping industry must resolve. The worlds shipping needs are currently being met because the infrastructure needed to sustain it is already in place. The problem arises from the fact that the current infrastructure is being used almost to capacity. If the freight shipping industry wants to continue expanding, it will have to begin creating new infrastructure to support the increase.

Now, creating the infrastructure requires financing something that the freight shipping companies may lack, and governments might not see the need to invest in building new ports, airports, railways and highways if they cannot see an immediate financial return from doing so. However, even if the governments from around the world were able to commit to building the needed infrastructure to allow the freight shipping industry to continue expanding, the creation of these new ports and airports will take time. The time needed to build the necessary infrastructure will, inevitably, have an impact on the speed of growth that the freight shipping industry is experiencing.

So, while it is true that the freight shipping sector can continue to expand for the foreseeable future, the long range forecast is far from clear. What is definitely clear is that the industry will have to begin investing in its future and also in finding ways to mitigate the eventual slowdown that all industry analysts know is coming.

The other very important point of consideration when it comes to the freight shipping industry is its negative environmental footprint. Engineers working for the shipping industry have been working on creating more powerful, more efficient engines for their sea and air carriers and they have also been working on ways of eliminating waste from their business model. However, the progress in this area is limited and still needs a lot of research and development to produce significant results. At least the reduction of the freight shipping industry footprint is on the agenda and being worked on diligently.

China Auto Parts Industry 1h11 – Overview,trends,analysis,outlook And Swot

Emerging Markets Direct released their latest China Auto Parts Industry Report 1H11 . China overtook the US as the worlds largest automotive market in 2009. The Chinese market was expected to grow by 24% to 17 million vehicles in 2010. Boosted by the overall development of the automotive industry, the auto parts industry has been experiencing rapid growth and changes in the past few years. Ever since Chinas accession into the WTO, foreign auto giants have flocked to China to secure the market share.

ASEAN, and other Asia-Pac countries together take up Chinas largest components. In the first quarter of 2010, it went up to USD1.8 billion, which constituted 30% of total exports. North America continues to hold the top ranking for brakes,tires and other mechanical parts which generated around one-forth of the aggregate sales in the first three months of 2010. While EU was the second largest market for brakes and electronic parts, just behind North America and Asia-Pac.

For the period between 2002 to 2008, auto parts manufacturers registered an annual growth of 20% per annum, while the total value output of auto parts reached RMB1.2 trillion, up 26.7% from 2008. The strong growth in the industry has attracted a pool of companies to join the arcade and has resulted in foreign companies accounting for seven out of the ten biggest component companies operating in China . The manufacturers sprout out in almost every part of the country and widely dispersed.

The government encouraged the overall growth of the automotive sector and laid out the Automotive Industry Development Policy and 11th Five-Year Plan, targeted to consolidate the auto parts companies and boost up the industry to international standard. Our analyst thinks that parts productions in China are still lagging behind the development of vehicle production, with weak R&D skills in terms of new technologies development and production systems management. Greater initiative is required to promote mergers and acquisitions, as a solution for large component groups to reach out and upgrade the product and managerial skills.
