Xu Lirong: Grasp the trend of digital development
Shipping logistics companies connect the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, are the main force in the transportation of important materials, and are responsible for opening up the logistics lifeline for the industrial chain. Xu Lirong believes that the new crown epidemic has brought an impact on the normal operation of the global supply chain, but it has also promoted the development of digital technology and innovative models, and has brought some new characteristics to the development of the global supply chain. These new features are the staged and partial optimization of the global industrial chain supply chain. The long-term development trend of globalization has not changed. Overall, there will be the following changes:
The regional characteristics of the supply chain will be strengthened. The general trend of openness and cooperation in the global supply chain will not change, but the partial pattern of the supply chain will be more optimized, and the characteristics of regional division of labor will become more obvious in the future.
Countries pay more attention to the balance of supply chains. In order to maintain the stability of the supply chain, countries will pay more attention to manufacturing capabilities and develop towards the high end of the industrial chain.
Digitalization continues to deepen the penetration of the supply chain. Online office, e-commerce, big data logistics and other technologies have played an important role in this epidemic and have been rapidly developed. The penetration of digitalization in traditional industries including shipping and logistics is also accelerating.
