Head of Wiimas Asia-Pacific offices Ychelle Tan gave us a short update on their operations:
Overall situation and future in Asia logistics is looking very promising. Global trade growth in 2017 was the strongest since 2011 and that can be seen here as well. Freight volumes growing steadily with some fluctuation. Intra-Asia freights are increasing too.
This strong growth comes with a price: many terminals are under intense pressure, in some cases leading to lengthy delays. The situation is especially bad in South East Asia where the freight space is continuously limited. We advise all our clients to plan and book their freights as early as possible to avoid any delays.
Growing need for “all-in-one” logistics service has given our offices a chance to grow their operations. At this moment we have a total of 10 people working for us in the Asia Pacific. Our operations scope is very wide ranging from 4PL services to agent- and routing business. We are actively looking for new customers in small- and mid-sized companies, says Ychelle
