Martin Bencher Group Newsletter - week 31


Can You Keep Up With The News?

Anyone working with international shipping and trading must feel a bit dizzy these days. There are a lot of attention grapping headlines which indicates that our world could be changing fast;
Trade wars are looming: What if it happens? How will it impact the supply and demand of shipping services?
Digitalization and Blockchain technology: How can we make good use of todays – and tomorrows – technology? What is real and what is hype?
Big scale mergers in the shipping industry: Consolidation is much needed – how will it impact service level and rates?
How do we manage all these potential threats – and opportunities?
At Martin Bencher we try to use our common sense, stay alert and to be as much ahead of the game as we possibly can be, so we can guide our customers best way possible.
We do that by being curious and by spending time with and listening to our stakeholders; customers, employees, suppliers, authorities, and using the network which has been carefully built up over the past 20+ years.
We look forward to our next conversation with you and to learn from you.
Thank you for your attention and for subscribing to our newsletter.


Best regards,
