Asia Pacific Cep Market Key Trends

Increasing Express Shipments and Small Parcels:

Asia-Pacific has continued to cement its position as one the world’s most important regions for express parcels. The national postal operators such as SingPost, Japan Post and Australia Post are all investing heavily to expand their operations in the region. The region has long been a major destination for multinational companies as supply chains have globalized and demand for Asian exports from Western countries has increased. As the region moves from an export-dependent to a consumer-driven economy, logistics dynamics are shifting. What was once an international supply chain dominated by air and ocean freight providers has evolved into an e-commerce-driven regional supply chain influenced by domestic express and small parcel suppliers. Unlike the US, the Asia-Pacific market is a fragmented and immature market struggling to meet huge demand. As a result, many retailers and providers of e-commerce have established their own logistics solutions.
