China Breakfast Networking Session (Logistics & Transport)
This event was held on 28th May 2015 at the Peninsula Excelsior Hotel. It was jointly organised by SCCCI, SAAA@Singapore, SSA and PWC. There were 34 participants from China provincial representatives based in Singapore, freight forwarders, carriers representatives, including SAAA@Singapore council members.
There were discussions on the Yangtze River Belt, which hold strategic significance in China’s regional economic landscape and the multi-modal railway transport from Europe into China versus ocean mode. Another question raised was on the impact of additive manufacturing like 3D printing innovation on logistics sector over the next 5 years. Most participants thought the impact is not significant due to the early stage of innovation and low cargo volume. Several participants also seek to understand more about the air freight forwarding and their rates. The networking session truly brought together key industry players to share their industrial experiences and knowledge about the China provincial/city representatives based in Singapore.
