Singapore Freight & Logistics Market

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 marzo 2019

Singapore has seamless transport connectivity. It has dense sea and road networks for multimodal transshipment, with a Seamless intermodal connectivity between one of the world’s busiest seaports and airports. The airport is less than an hour drive from PSA terminals, the world’s second-largest container port and busiest transshipment hub, with connectivity to over 600 ports.PSA has four container terminals, one multi-purpose terminal, and one vehicle transshipment terminal operational in the country. PSA also has a huge shipping line network of 200 shipping lines, connecting 123 countries with vessels, with a frequency of 60 per day.Changi International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports for international air cargo, handling over 1.97 million metric ton annually, with transshipment volume accounting for almost half of the throughput, hence regarded as global air cargo hub.Designed to move cargo, like clockwork round the clock, the cold chain facilities, warehouses, and offices at Changi Airfreight Centre (CAC), coupled with the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS), are well equipped to cater to all operational needs.Airfreight operations at Changi Airport are centered at the Changi Airfreight Centre (CAC), a 24-hour Free Trade Zone, where transshipment cargo can be broken down and reconsolidated with minimal Customs formalities.Insights on Maritime Transport and Role of Singapore as a Key Transhipment Hub. Port of Singapore is recognized as the busiest container transshipment hub in the world. The strategic geographical location of the country serves as a gateway to ASEAN countries and the rest of the world, and has a connection with more than 600 ports in over 120 countries. Owing to the excellent quality and services, world-class infrastructure, and consistent R&D activities, the maritime sector has gained traction over the past few years. Despite the decreased trend in the container volume of the major transshipment hubs, like Hong Kong, and fierce competition from neighboring ports in Malaysia, the container traffic at the Singapore ports reached 33.7 million TEUs in 2017, which represented an increase of 8.9%, as compared to 2016. Similarly, the total cargo throughput of the Singaporean ports had registered 627.69 million metric ton in 2017, an increase of 5.8%, as compared to 2016, in which bulk oil cargo recorded a growth of 5.3% in 2017. Owing to the future growth in the container throughput, MPA, along with PSA Singapore, has been expanding the Pasir Panjang Terminal. It is expected that the port capacity will be increased by 50% upon the completion of the expansion process. Additionally, the ports will be able to handle the mega-container ships. To reduce the shipping costs and gain productivity, shipping companies are coming up with mega-alliances. The ports with the capability of handling the mega-alliances gain competitive advantage.

Logistics: “L’ABC per costruire un sistema circolare”

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 gennaio 2019

Milano 24 gennaio 2019 (ore 9.00-13.00) a Palazzo delle Stelline di Milano (corso Magenta 61) da Assologistica Cultura e Formazione convegno “Supply Chain e Reverse Logistics: L’ABC per costruire un sistema circolare”. Ottantotto miliardi di fatturato, 22 miliardi di valore aggiunto (pari all’1,5% del valore aggiunto nazionale), oltre 575 mila gli occupati. Sono questi i numeri dell’economia circolare emersi da una recente ricerca di Ambiente Italia, dalla quale si evince chiaramente che il nostro Paese sta progressivamente abbandonando l’economia lineare (basata su estrazione di materie prime sempre nuove, consumo di massa e produzione di scarti una volta raggiunta la fine di vita dei prodotti) per passare all’economia circolare della rivalorizzazione, nella quale i prodotti sono parte di un modello in cui la competizione è basata sulla creazione del valore aggiunto dato dal servizio di un prodotto e non solamente sul valore della sua vendita.La definizione classica di economia circolare è quella di “un’economia pensata per potersi rigenerare da sola. In un’economia circolare i flussi di materiali sono di due tipi: quelli biologici, in grado di essere reintegrati nella biosfera, e quelli tecnici, destinati a essere rivalorizzati senza entrare nella biosfera”. Tale definizione proviene dall’impegno della Ellen MacArthur Foundation, realtà tra le più dinamiche nel promuovere questo modello di sviluppo, finanziata dalla velista Ellen MacArthur e sostenuta da colossi quali Google, Banca Intesa, H&M e Forum Economico Mondiale.Ancora un altro dato significativo emerso dal recente forum sulla sostenibilità organizzato da Il Sole 24 Ore: nel nostro Paese il 55% degli imballaggi viene riciclato, mentre a livello complessivo siamo al 50% di riciclo dei materiali. Il recupero dei rifiuti da imballo ha consentito un risparmio di 40 milioni di tonnellate di materia prima.
Si tratta di risultati di tutto rispetto e il tema merita attenzione anche da parte del mondo della logistica, la cui funzione è parte integrante del mondo economico-produttivo. Ma come si colloca il nostro settore nei confronti di un processo così importante per il futuro stesso del nostro pianeta (il riciclo comporta una riduzione di consumi energetici e idrici, nonché di emissioni atmosferiche e idriche) e dalle interessantissime ricadute economiche e sociali? Sono in molti a considerare l’economia circolare un potente driver di sviluppo economico nei prossimi decenni. Come pensa di posizionarsi al riguardo la logistica?
Relatori della mattinata saranno Tommaso De Luca – communication manager di Lucart Group; Paolo Guidi, direttore sales e marketing di Kuehne + Nagel; Giuseppe Luscia, ECR project manager di GS1 Italy; Angelo Mancuso, amministratore unico di Simpool; Massimo Marciani, presidente del Freight Leaders Council; Michele Merola, ricercatore del Centro GREEN Università Bocconi; Nicola Semeraro, presidente di Rilegno; Luigi Terzi, presidente di Assologistica Cultura e Formazione.

DHL Logistics Trend Radar: sostenibilità, tecnologia e persone sono il futuro della logistica

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 giugno 2018

Nella quarta edizione del Logistics Trend Radar, DHL ha sottolineato 28 tendenze chiave che potrebbero incidere sul settore logistico nei prossimi cinque-dieci anni, da cui emergono quattro elementi chiave che definiranno il futuro della logistica: centralità del cliente, sostenibilità, tecnologia e persone. “Il Logistics Trend Radar di DHL rappresenta una roadmap per l’innovazione, sottolineando quali saranno gli snodi cruciali per la logistica da qui a 10 anni. Dalla robotica alla blockchain, dalla realtà aumentata ai Digital Twins, questa panoramica contribuisce a comprendere meglio quale impatto significativo avrà la rivoluzione digitale sul settore logistico nei prossimi anni, contribuendo a strutturare ricerche e progetti insieme ai nostri clienti e partner”, ha affermato Mario Zini, Country Manager Italia di DHL Global Forwarding. Con l’aumentare della quantità di beni che possono essere acquistati online, in particolare nel mercato B2B, si evidenzia la necessità di soluzioni di logistica B2B omnicanale. La domanda dei clienti sta anche guidando la crescita delle spedizioni di beni sensibili al tempo e alla temperatura, che richiederà nuove innovazioni in termini di imballaggio, stoccaggio e consegna di merci quali generi alimentari e prodotti farmaceutici. Un esempio, DHL Air Thermonet, il servizio di DHL Global Forwarding che consente il monitoraggio costante dei prodotti farmaceutici sensibili alla temperatura e la possibilità di intervenire in tempi brevi in ​​caso di incidenti, garantisce la sicurezza e l’integrità di carichi estremamente delicati e di valore.
La sostenibilità diventerà indispensabile per operare nel settore della logistica: governi, città e fornitori di soluzioni si stanno impegnando a stipulare accordi per ridurre le emissioni di CO2 e i rifiuti.
La tecnologia sta diventando sempre più pervasiva nella logistica, in particolare per tendenze chiave come Internet of Things e Artificial Intelligence. Una tendenza che potrà subire una forte accelerazione è la diffusione delle reti wireless di prossima generazione, che potranno aumentare significativamente il valore economico derivato dalla connettività nella catena di fornitura.
Le persone continueranno a rimanere al centro della logistica, anche se l’aumento della robotica, dell’automazione e dell’uso di software ridefiniranno la struttura della forza lavoro logistica in futuro.
Il Logistics Trend Radar è sviluppato attraverso l’analisi di mega e microtrend, raccogliendo input provenienti da un significativo ecosistema di partner tra cui istituti di ricerca, attori tecnologici, startup e clienti. Questi imput vengono raccolti da oltre 10.000 professionisti della logistica e esperti di tecnologia che visitano annualmente i Centri di innovazione DHL. I risultati sono poi aggregati e inseriti nelul Logistics Trend Radar, rendendolo uno strumento di previsione dinamico e strategico, in cui si traccia l’evoluzione delle tendenze individuate nelle precedenti edizioni e si identificano nuove tendenze per il futuro.

Impact of Driverless Cars on Logistics and Insurance at GIL 2015: Monaco

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 30 luglio 2015

london-centralLONDON Disrupting unsustainable business models is the only way to survive and thrive in the current economy. Many companies are at a crossroad and making the right decisions has become a question of life or death in this marketplace. To help industry leaders identify the way forward and future growth strategies, Frost & Sullivan brings together a global network of visionaries and thought leaders at its annual Growth, Innovation, and Leadership (GIL) conference. GIL 2015 returns for its second edition on the glamorous shores of Monaco on Friday, 23 October. The event at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort will feature a mix of Frost & Sullivan experts and distinguished industry visionaries. The impact of new business models and a new world of opportunities that are shaking the marketplace are the key themes of this year’s conference in Monaco. Frost & Sullivan Senior Partner and Head of the Visionary Innovation Group Sarwant Singh will present some of these new business models: “We will look at some interesting case studies, such as the impact of driverless cars on logistics and insurance.” Driverless Cars: A Case Study. Shortage deemed to be the single largest challenge in the sector, the future of people logistics and freight logistics is expected to merge. “Think of it as a model in which DHL or UPS would deliver packages small and large using a combination of personally owned vehicles, commercial fleet and also car-sharing fleet. Needless to say this allows for a rather leaner road traffic that can move people and goods, by increasing the utilization of the seat-space and boot-space as well,” says Partner Sarwant Singh.Autonomous cars come with a larger set of challenges. On one hand, these virtually crash-free vehicles entail little or no risk from a collision perspective, which slashes down insurance premiums, thereby directly impacting the insurance community. On the other hand, it brings to the table a new set of risks that insurers have traditionally not been accustomed to addressing. Reliability of the driving algorithm, use-cases not taken into account by the automaker, robustness of fail-operational mode in the vehicle architecture are way too technical to be assessed by insurers.Vehicle insurance currently follows a driver-centric model, with some amount of the calculation of risk and premium being associated with vehicle- and traffic-related parameters. With the driver getting relegated to the level of an occupant in the future, when the vehicle drives itself, the insurance model also shall change accordingly. This would imply that the drivers need not pay as much of an insurance premium as they do in today’s scenario. In 2013, on average, a typical European vehicle owner paid around €470 on insuring the vehicle. Going forward, with level 4 automated vehicles replacing conventional vehicles, the risk of collision can be reduced by around 70 percent and inclusion of new parameters to assess the risk of vehicle is likely to result in average premium to reduce to €300.
The one-day conference will start at 9 am with a welcome speech by the Senior Partner & Global Head of Growth Consulting Jan E Kristiansen. This year, for the first time ever, a brand new analysis by Frost & Sullivan on opportunities in the Financial Services will be presented. Senior Partner and UK Operations Director Gary Jeffery will unveil the latest Mega Trends of a sector that is a key element of Monaco’s economy.
The congress will also host most stimulating keynote presentations from the following Government and Industry Leaders:
– Mr Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance & Economy of the Principality of Monaco,
– Mr Martin Péronnet, Managing Director of Monaco Telecom, the Principality’s Telecom Operator,
– Mrs Isabelle Hilali, VP Marketing and Strategy of Orange Healthcare,
– Mr David Chalmers, Vice President Presales and Chief Technologist (Enterprise Group, EMEA), Hewlett-Packard Limited
The conference will be preceded on Thursday 22 October, by the presentation of the Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards to a range of regional and global market players for their superior leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development achievements.

Delivering to Future Cities – Mega Trends Driving Urban Logistics

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 12 febbraio 2013

London Over the past two decades delivering goods into the cities has become a challenge with cities getting overly congested and traffic jams resulting in expensive logistics bottlenecks. In fact, studies show that the cost of congestion now in terms of time wasted in traffic and fuel consumption is off the roof, almost 200 per cent more than what it was in the 1980s. And congestion is only a part of the urban delivery problem. Pollution, lack of parking bays, and warehousing costs are all restraints that are contributing to the economic cost of urban logistics.There is already a paradigm shift in how products are being manufactured (3D printing) and retailed (transition to online channels) today and the common denominator, supply chain, at all stages of a product’s lifecycle must quickly adapt to the changes as well. While it will take another decade or so for 3D printing to become mainstream, the growing market of online retail has already significantly impacted the industry. In order to understand these shifts, it is important to understand the mega trends that directly influence them.(Written by Archana Vidyasekar, Senior Research Analyst, Visionary Innovation Group, Frost & Sullivan)

The Russian logistics industry

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 25 giugno 2010

It suffered more than most from the 2009 global financial crisis.  With the industry shrinking by 20.9 per cent, Russian firms started dumping prices to retain clients while demand for warehouses and private cargo traffic shrank over 30 per cent. Although potentially highly lucrative for foreign players, the logistical infrastructure in Russia needs a serious injection of capital to meet EU and global standards. Moreover, continued economic instability, bureaucratic red-tape, and managerial differences still pose serious barriers to entry. To provide unique insights into the Russian logistics market, the Automotive & Transportation Group at Frost & Sullivan (http://www.transportation .frost.com) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting an online analyst briefing presentation on Tuesday, 6 July, 2010 at 3:00 pm BST. By discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the Russian logistics market, this briefing will benefit logistics service providers, interested financial institutions, and warehouse equipment manufacturers. Highlights of the briefing include analyses of: the demand for logistics services, warehousing development, contract logistics, and state interference in the economy.

Their bodies are everywhere on the streets of the capital. People are still under the debris. The hospitals are overwhelmed with the dead and injured. The risk of disease is great.   Caritas Internationalis President Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga said, “We are in solidarity with the people of Haiti. Caritas will be providing desperately needed aid.  Caritas and its church partners have extensive experience in Haiti delivering shelter, food, healthcare, and clean water through the communities in which we work.   Caritas Haiti and Caritas members working in the country have available warehouses, 200 medical centres, and a strong community network of volunteers that are being used to deliver aid.
