When logistics experts discuss the challenges and prospects for global supply chains in 2023, it’s clear that a multitude of factors are involved. Many shippers and players in the transport and logistics business are currently under great pressure.
This is due to a number of lingering issues including huge increases in energy prices, large fluctuations in the supply and demand for transport capacities, delays in port trans-shipment, and bottlenecks in hinterland transport. Furthermore, numerous countries are experiencing double-digit inflation.
