With increasing worldwide trade and globalization, ever more goods are shipped between continents and countries. The Economic Partnership Agreement between Japan and the EU is further increasing the movement of freight, including difficult to handle goods such as agricultural products. On the other hand, current global geopolitical crisis shake the world as we know it.
Despite all challenges, goods still (have to) move half way around the world. How do machine tools travel from Germany to Japan, or semiconductors and game consoles from Japan to Germany? And what happens, if, like in recent years and months, the global movement of freight suddenly stops? The fact that routes and modes of transportation all had to be reconsidered time and again posed great challenges to global logistics. The effects are felt by businesses and private consumers alike. How does the logistics sector cope with this unprecedented developments? What is being done to support customers during this difficult time?
Logistics expert Miriam Nagel from Hamburg-based MOL Döhle Worldwide Logistics GmbH willl speak about her first-hand experience of shipping goods worldwide. She will give insights into the structures involved in getting your goods from Japan to Germany and vice versa, and offers suggestions as to what precautions companies can take when shipping goods to customers or receiving them from suppliers in Japan.
