Recently, the world has witnessed a number of trade-related setbacks due to geopolitical uncertainties, triggered by the bloc and leading economies over a potential market’s products, which resulted in huge disruption in the global supply chain. Hence, trade-related companies are rather left to scramble for trade recovery, with shippers seemingly stalled on how to get around the new normal.
Judging by expert’s prediction which stipulated that before very long the world will witness trade rebound irrespective of the current economic climate, however, shippers have hoped that the promising litany of experts’ analogy would have come to fruition by now, instead, shippers are left to toil with the ugly side of the tunnel or be innovative about the present even as high inflation rate sweep across the globe. To address this concern, we’re poised to focus on how trade consultants, shippers, trade entities, and individuals could potentially walk around the present trade concerns.
Going forward, it will be fair to note that the current trade challenges coupled with the high inflation rate require us to rethink, and as such, opt for the best strategy in order to get things right other than repeat those unhealthy trade approach that hasn’t helped our respective ambitions and financial targets. And as we double down on this trajectory, it will be nice to lay down potential areas of interest from experts’ point of view that will aid your trade rebound irrespective of the market or geography. Firstly;
ALTERNATE MARKET STRATEGY
Currently, there are trade concerns over specific commodities originating from a couple of markets that are core to the global supply chain. Hence, it should be borne in mind that the exclusion of such commodities from regional trade will obviously have a significant impact on the supply chain precisely that of a major market that offers diverse commodities (wet and dry cargo). However, since this leads to a decline in trade movement, it’s also expected to have a terrible impact on the shipping sphere. As a result, the shipping space has witnessed the ugly side of geopolitical concern, while concerned entities are left to scramble on the way out of the present trade challenges, which point to alternate markets and trade routes.
In view of this, even as shippers scramble over trade recovery, we urge that efforts should be made in the direction of an alternate market. This can be achieved by getting regular consignees ship from other potential markets per commodity over a traditional one. Let’s say, energy and agro commodities, for instance, have over the years originated from two major markets that have been blacklisted by specific geography and leading economies. To scale up your trade volume, shippers can advise clients about getting the same trade commodities from less volatile markets irrespective of the logistics involved.
Based on the points highlighted above, it’s become necessary to have your trade quotes restructured in order to suit the present trade requirement, noting that on every trade quote lies terms and conditions coupled with the cost of service delivery. However, since we’re expected to run our shipping process totally different from the traditional approach which meant adopting new measures while noting industrial dominance and potential competitors as a factor, hence, restructuring our trade quote should be carefully crafted as a tool of high significance.
Quote as we know is a significant document when it comes to inking deals in this sphere, and core to trade recovery, hence, it’s worth giving your best short noting that trade is largely dependent on the quote. In view of this, trade quote in this scenario should be modeled with the current economic climate since geopolitical uncertainties and the high inflation rate is contributing factors influencing trade currently, however, should the quote be ill-structured, the intended desired volume could be out of sight.
As for the subject quote, cost per service delivery should this time be our core focus, which aims to back the trade terms and conditions. And if we have to place side-by-side the current trade concerns, bearing in mind your core goal – “trade recovery” which points at volume, while putting into consideration the current trade concerns and inflation rate. But since shipments to certain markets and geographies will have to go through alternate routes in order to circumvent regional penalties over the specific market, intended shipping costs per trade should be shaped professionally and kept within the realm of possibility for all parties.
TRADE RE-ROUTE MEASURES & BENEFITS
In the meantime, there are concerns over a specific market’s commodities which we may liken to an embargo that has significantly impacted the global supply chain. However, since the subject market is core to the global supply chain, with trade rebound our key objective in this trajectory, hence, to circumvent this challenge would mean altering the current geopolitical dynamics that seem to have influence within the axis of trade.
Currently, a number of markets have come up with the idea of trade reroutes or uninfluenced routes to specific markets such as the Russia-to-India transit route via Iran in order to encourage trade as an inventive measure that aims to alter the existing trade architecture. Hence, from an expert perspective, we urge that shippers (you) take advantage of this channel even as they seek their fair share in the already challenging sphere.
As shippers seek to walk around the present uncertainties, I will urge that you take advantage of the trade reroute approach that has proven to be the solution to the current concern that is looming within the axis of trade, and should be viewed as the icing on the cake for trade-related firms and shippers with emphasis on trade recovery.
Going by this measure, quotes based on shipping should be structured to suit the present transportation corridor that differs from the traditional transit routes to other regional markets.
