Carriers vs forwarders; Cargo Theft & Cultural Wars; Asia-Europe at full stretch
/

Show Notes

Credits: Created, Produced and Hosted by Mike King

This jam-packed episode examines why container lines are getting increasingly picky about who they deem worthy of their servicesm and why the implications for forwarders are  far-reaching.

We turn our gaze on cargo thefts and why they are being dragged into the cultural wars, and we consider if container lines will continue to buy airlines.

We also look in more detail at what is happening on the Asia-Europe trade, we examine how liner network reorganisations are impacting less lucrative trades and we hear the latest on air and shipping freight rates.
