What’s the new investment hotspot?

From the August 2016 issue.

With the European economy on the rise again and Chinese manufacturing weakened, many a transport executive is now re-examining their emerging markets strategy.

Gauging the business potential of emerging markets is a topic of on-going discussion amongst transport and logistics executives, as there are countless variables that can influence which regions are ripe for investment and which may prove risky.

To help expanding businesses gain a clearer understanding of that potential, analysis and research firm Transport Intelligence (Ti) has developed an annual Emerging Markets Logistics Index in collaboration with supply chain service provider, Agility Global Integrated Logistics.

“More than ever, investors in emerging markets [now] need to be discerning and the results of our Index are critical to providing clarity in a confusing and complex world,” says John Manners-Bell, Chief Executive at Ti.

According to Manners-Bell, the most recent edition of the Index collates data from over 1,100 global logistics and supply chain executives, including their opinions on how emerging markets compare in terms of growth potential, connectedness and business climate. The result is a ranking of the top 45 emerging markets, and what Agility calls a ‘snapshot’ of industry sentiment towards opportunities and concerns for the year ahead.
