Perceived Effect of China’s Economic Slowdown on the Transportation & Logistics Market

Survey question: How has China’s economic slowdown impacted the country’s transportation and logistics sector?

It is broadly accepted that the overall logistics market moves in line with wider economic growth in mature markets, and a little more than one third of survey respondents indicated the same is true of China too. With China rapidly transitioning towards an economy focussed on service sector expansion, it could be that slowing growth and declining volumes in manufacturing sectors are being replaced with opportunities in other parts of the economy, most notably e-commerce. The indication here is that LSPs on the whole have managed to build a good mix of business in their portfolios, and avoided the risks of overexposing their operations to declining sectors of the market.
