The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is without a doubt changing the global movement of goods. The logistics industry, being the carrier, will also experience major change. While maritime sea lanes will still be the mode of transport for most of the volumes, rail transport and intermodal solutions are gaining traction. Many cities that were not traditionally considered as logistics hubs are growing more influential, both locally and globally. This brings both opportunities and challenges for logistics companies.
How do small and medium sized local logistics companies enhance their visibility and gain more business? How can one provide competitive rates in routes or services that they have not previously explored before? Who should you reach out to in a new region for local value add services?
All these questions reveal a lack of transparency and information, that could be overcome with a platform that will serve as a professional ecosystem. NSRN has the clear vision to bridge the gap between Chinese companies and those geographically located along the New Silk Road, and help everyone connect with the right companies.
NSRN’s mission is to connect people from the broad spectrum of the logistics industry, promote the exchange of know-how and information, enable members to gain a better understanding of the circumstances presented by the development of the New Silk Road, and ultimately benefit from the change in the movement of goods and global economy interdependency.
