Ocean freight will be the primary mode of transport in cross-border e-commerce supply chains

E-commerce is changing the way the business of sales and distribution of goods for consumption is done in Asia. The extent of the impact on the transportation and supply chain industry continues to unfold but a basic pattern is emerging that points to development of strategic distribution support centres for both cross-border and domestic e-commerce transactions. As well as driving the development of modern facilities and improved technological systems to better integrate retail, trade and logistics processes, this model supports ocean freight as the dominant mode of transportation in the cross-border e-commerce supply chains of the future.
