As the driver of global trade, the Asia-Pacific region has some of the largest container ports in the world, including the world’s three largest, Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong. It also has some of the strongest and most rapidly emerging economies, from the world’s manufacturing and export giant China to South Korea, the United States’ newest free trade partner. But the dynamics of that trade are changing rapidly, as China and others develop a rapidly growing middle class. To fill that demand, once-dominant exporters increasingly are manufacturing for their home markets and relying on exports from overseas to fill the void. That is great news for North American exporters looking to break into and expand in new markets. Meanwhile, with the global economy improving, the outlook for the two largest ocean trades — the trans-Pacific and Asia-Europe — is brightening, especially in the second half of the year.
This Webcast will examine that outlook and the implications for North American importers and exporters and the transportation providers that serve them.
