Here’s a small taste of what three of our experts had to say about 2016:
“There’s a sweeping market disruption that we need to embrace: the movement from customer-aware to customer-led.”
- Peggy Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, Worldwide ERC®
“Now, major van lines are moving toward having the tariff structured to be able to bill these programs as they are designed , which is containerization programs. You can’t even call containerization alternative anymore – it’s become conventional, but the billing structures have not yet followed the operational structure, and that is definitely something that is coming.”
- David Cox, President, Suddath Relocation Systems
“In 2016, there will be easier entrance policies for certain nationals, as China seeks to facilitate business travel and work-related stays for foreign nationals (as exemplified by both the July visa exemption granted to Taiwanese residents and the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement signed in June).”
- Dennis Rasmussen, Global - Client Services Advisor, Fragomen Worldwide
