GFS offers a practical, four-point action plan for delivery to help retailers mitigate the risk of Brexit and accelerate international e-commerce growth.

How logistics changed Middle East's stature-Forwardernews

Some of the most urbanized cities such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, and Jeddah, among others, have grown rapidly due to a well-developed logistics ecosystem.

It comes as small surprise that the same concerns have been raised by the European Shippers’ Council (ESC) which recently stated that the service provided by container shipping lines has deteriorated since 2016 and is now seen by exporters, importers and freight forwarders “as more problematic.” 
According to the second annual shipper satisfaction survey done by ESC and Drewry Supply Chain Advisors, all the service features received a poor or medium level of satisfaction score from customers. 
“The most critical issues facing ocean carriers for the remainder of the year are to regain profitability and stop cutting customer service as a cost-reduction measure,” said Philip Damas, Head of Drewry’s Supply Chain Advisors in an interview.

US imposes new security measures on incoming cargo shipments

US imposes new security measures on incoming cargo shipments-Forwardernews

The new measure took effect Tuesday.
Carriers operating planes with commercial cargo now must send certain information about that cargo to U.S. Customs and Border Protection before loading the plane.
Until now, airlines generally weren't required to provide the cargo information until a few hours before the plane's arrival. Officials said that meant Customs might not have enough time to identify items that could be bombs or chemical or biological weapons until the plane was already on its way to a U.S. destination.
Customs said it will be able to order airline crews not to load suspicious cargo. The government is not detailing the information that the airlines must provide.
