The Future of Logistics, interview with Ashwin Didwania from NEW GLOBE LOGISTIK (India)

Ashwin Didwania, Managing Director at New Globe Logistik (Pangea partner in India), was selected as speaker in a Logistics workshop framed within the CES 2018, formerly The International Consumer Electronics Show, recently celebrated in Las Vegas. CES is the world’s gathering place where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, with 50 years of history and featuring all aspects of the industry. It is really significant to see that Logistics occupies a space in so high-tech orientated events and proves the challenges the sector is facing.

Amongst other international speakers, Ashwin presented his views on the topic “The Future of Logistics”, including the relevance of logistics and its challenges, the emergence of tech forwarders, and the space left for boutique consulting and valued services. On his return, we took the opportunity to interview him and further his insights.

First of all, let’s comment about the event and the logistics workshop. What actors participated (freight forwarders, importers/exporters, shipping lines)? Which were the main concerns or matters discussed?

The event was consumer electronics show. It is one of the largest show’s in Las Vegas where importer, exporter, shipping line, freight forwards and tech experts all merge. This event has been used in the past for launch of products like iphone, ipad, Pentium chip processor, xbox, virtual reality games etc.. so it is pretty leading edge and futuristic.
On the logistics side the main concern was about how supply chains are gearing up for the future with changes in supply chain management , technology and customer requirements.

PEKAES (Poland) on the Investment Road

PEKAES, Pangea partner in Poland and leading logistic operator, is increasing its activity on the Silk and Amber Road. Last year the company serviced hundreds of trains carrying goods from Baltic ports. The quantity of goods transported this way to the Łódź terminal doubled. Such dynamic development would not be possible without further investments which are being announced by the PEKAES Group.

From the moment of its takeover of the SPEDCONT company in 2013, the PEKAES Group has been investing incessantly in the development of the transport of goods from China and from Baltic ports located in Gdynia and Gdańsk. Thanks to the expansion of the cargo handling terminal in Łódź, the company may currently store even 3,500 forty-foot containers, i.e. 25 percent more than last year. By the end of April, the company is planning to finish the expansion of the 13-hectare terminal. This will enable it to increase the volume of shipments and reloading of goods transported from China and from sea ports.
