LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top eight leading vendors in their recent global airfreight forwarding market report until 2021. This research report also lists 17 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period. Geographically, APAC constitutes the majority part of this market with a share of almost 52%. More than 73% of the incremental growth in this market will originate from APAC. The increase in international trade and growing economy of India, China, and Japan will be responsible for this growth in the region. One of the most important drivers of the global airfreight forwarding market will be the increasing number of trade agreements among nations. The thriving global economy has resulted in extremely good international trade. The ASEAN nations have entered agreements with FTAs and other Asian nations, which is changing the manufacturing landscape. Other important drivers are an increased demand for time-definite shipments for perishable products and requirement for regional and local market expertise in freight transportation. “The global airfreight forwarding market is fragmented and characterized by the presence of numerous small vendors worldwide. Despite the acquisitions by large forwarders like DHL, UPS, and FedEx, the airfreight forwarding market remains without any one vendor having market monopoly. There have been considerable merger and acquisition activities in the market with forwarders trying to increase their position in the market,” says Sharan Raj, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for packaging research. Several small enterprises have entered the market due to the low barriers to entry and compete effectively with incumbent players. The major players retaliated with the introduction of IT systems to set their products apart with better services. To complete with the large number of integrators in the market, forwarders partnered with air carriers and introduced time-definite services to offer more reliable services. Overall, this market is very competitive with vendors constantly trying to increase their foothold on the market. Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

How Improving the Logistics Chain Will Assist Nigerian and West African Economy Thousands of representatives from the transport and logistics industry, ranging from road, rail, sea, air to inland waterways, will meet for the Multimodal West Africa exhibition and conference in Lagos from 24-26 January 2017. Lagos, Nigeria, November 05, 2016 --( “In July 2016, the Minister of Aviation made a pronouncement that our ports are overwhelmed and as a result of that, they are creating dry ports for the different geopolitical zones,” says Oluremi Ajayi, General Manager of DSV, the fourth largest freight forwarder in the world. She adds, “This will go a long way to strengthen our connecting modes of transports especially the rail system and also boost relationship within and outside African countries through the Ecowas Trade Liberalization Scheme.” “Nigerian economy is ready to take a big leap” Mr Samuel Jeffson, Director at St. John Freight Systems agrees, “We as St. John Group are equally excited as we closely monitor some interesting developments ahead with investments coming in from global conglomerates like AP Moller in the upcoming Badagry port facility and also the setting up of Lekki Deep Sea port by AfDB and a consortium of private investors and banks. With these additional facilities coming up, it will increase the port and terminal throughput activities by multiple folds.” He continues, “Presently we see that the Nigerian economy is ready to take a big leap but its port infrastructure unfortunately does not support the vision and forms a major bottleneck. We believe with the new facilities coming up, the port and terminal industry landscape will totally change.” DSV and St John are both already confirmed to exhibit at the upcoming Multimodal West Africa transport and logistics exhibition and conference, which will offer a unique platform to showcase the latest supply chain solutions and equipment to decision makers from leading cargo owners, importers and exporters. The event represents all transport modes across every logistics sector including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, recycling and many more. Industry support Already the event has the support of several key industry bodies, including the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) Nigeria. Says former CILT President and head of The Africa Forum, Maj Gen Umar Usman (Rtd): “Multimodal West Africa has the ability to deliver more business than any other transport and logistics exhibition in West Africa. Having so many VIP customer decision makers from all sectors under one roof will mean that more business can be done in the three days that in months of arranging meetings. As a supporting association, CILT Nigeria members will most definitely be participating maximally.” Some of the 2500 cargo owners, shippers, major importers and exporters already registered to attend include West African Cotton Company, Zaika Foods Ltd, Pharmatex, GSK, De United Foods Industries Limited, Frigo Glass and DN Meyer. More than 80 exhibitors are expected, including freight forwarders, ship owners, shipping lines, ports & terminal operators as well as official government bodies. Expectations by logistics sector “Port development and trade expansion are closely interrelated; therefore I am excited about the Nigerian Government’s plans to increase port and terminal activity,” says Jennifer Ijeoma Anoyika, Director General of the Nigerian-German Business Association, another leading supporting association of Multimodal West Africa. She explains, “There are numerous expectations by the logistics sector, the business community and the general public, to see a great deal of obvious and measurable economic impacts and benefits resulting from the proposed port and terminal activity expansion. With appropriate investments and implementations in the right aspects, the plan should yield positive direct and indirect effects. We hope to see economic, technical, infrastructural and organisational development.” Multimodal West Africa is organised by the specialist, exhibition and conference organiser, Clarion Events West Africa, the Nigeria office of the Clarion Events Global Group. The same organisers responsible for the widely acclaimed Nigeria Manufacturing & Equipment Expo which took place March in Lagos, attracting more than 2,600 attendees, with the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) as event patrons. With nine years’ experience in the transport and logistics industry, Clarion Events West Africa and the Clarion Events Multimodal portfolio successfully connect cargo owners, shippers, major importers and exporters with freight forwarders, ship owners, shipping lines, ports & terminal operators as well as official government bodies to bring about greater port activity, increase connectivity and display the latest solutions for a slicker supply chain. The portfolio consists of Multimodal, held in London, UK; The Supply Chain & Logistics Summit & Expo, held in Europe; and Multimodal West Africa, held in Lagos, Nigeria.

He adds “With over 50 top transport and logistics companies, over 120 equipment manufacturers, over 100 raw materials manufacturers and other allied industry like finance, insurance and consultancy services displaying their equipment, product and services during the March event, it would be the largest conglomerate ever of the industrial, transport and logistics sectors in Nigeria, over a three-day period."

For terminals & ports, freight forwarders, shipping lines and clearing agents the unique prospect of reaching more than 5,000 customers in the space of three days will deliver incredible value to the entire industrial sector value chain!”“Furthermore,” says Dele, “the manufacturers who had planned to visit NME and NIRAM Expo now have an even stronger value proposition and are able to find more cost effective and efficient supply chain solutions showcased in the MMWA exhibition for the movement of their cargo."He continues: “when you consider that 90% of exhibitors for the NME are foreign equipment manufacturers from all over the world, 90% of the exhibitors for the MMWA and the NIRAM Expo are indigenous, it gives us a right mix of local and foreign business people to create a robust business event that will add tremendous value to the Nigerian industrial sector and would support the Federal Government’s efforts to revitalize the Nigerian industrial sector.”Some of the confirmed Multimodal West Africa speakers include;-Hajia Aisha Ali Ibrahim, FCILT,FNIS/ AGM Operations Nigerian Ports Authority-Mr. Hassan Bello, Esq, The Executive Secretary, Nigerian Shippers Council,-Dr. Obiora E.

Most recently, MPO closed its first round of venture capital in a $10 million growth equity investment from Updata Partners. The funds are earmarked for U.S. expansion, global marketing, international sales and new hires. To that end, it announced the appointment of Brian Hodgson as Executive Vice President of Business Development, responsible for pursuing opportunities with new and existing customers, markets and partnerships.

EVP of Business Development Brian Hodgson was formerly vice president of sales and marketing for Descartes Systems Group, a global provider of logistics software solutions. He spent four years at Oz Development as vice president of sales and marketing. Oz Development provided cloud-based solutions that streamlined warehouse and shipping processes and was acquired by Descartes in 2015.
