The COVID-19 pandemic has left its footprint on nearly every industry in the world, in one way or the other. Obviously, the impact on the freight and logistics sector has been enormous. Last year, when the economies were down; the plants being shut; manufacturing of goods at its lowest; the world came to a standstill resulting into some serious turbulent times especially for the Logistics Industry leaving many entities to go bankrupt, forcing many others to shut down their offerings for good.
But as the great Chinese general Sun Tzu once said, “In the midst of chaos, there is also an opportunity”, following that thought we have witnessed many logisticians across the globe who have reinvented themselves and evolved dramatically. The pandemic, has been an eye opener for many with regards to their IT readiness. Over the last few years, Technology has evolved exponentially and many organisations have started embracing the same to harvest the benefits which it brings – Automations, Increase in employee efficiency & productivity, but most importantly increased customer satisfaction index.
Across the globe many Logistics companies are riding on a wave of growth after the waning of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. FIBS Logistics Pte Ltd has been one of those. Showing massive growth in last 1 year, they today already have 17 offices spread across countries like Singapore, UAE, India, Hong Kong, China, Thailand & Indonesia.
This is just the start of their ambitious plan of being a major power house in the Asia Pacific region, said Dieter Warnke, Head of Finance & HR at Fibs. He added that they are targeting to open a few more offices within the region in coming few months. He believes that there are majorly two things that separate the company’s growth after a level and they are its team and IT systems. Companies who constantly & rightly invest in them will outperform their peers in the market.
