At the very center of Europe and Asia, Germany and Taiwan are natural logistics hubs and provide reliable port facilities that keep global supply chains running. According to the World Bank’s authoritative 2018 Logistics Performance Index, Germany and Taiwan rank at first and 27th place respectively, highlighting the convenience and efficiency of freight handling provided. Therefore, it is no wonder that both locations feature some of the world’s busiest port facilities. Taiwan’s largest port Kaohsiung currently ranks as the 15th busiest container port in the world, closely followed by Germany’s largest port, Hamburg, ranked 18th.
Considering these advantages, Germany and Taiwan are natural partners in the logistics industry. Hamburg Invest and Germany Trade Office Taipei will host a seminar on October 11th with the topic “Trends in the Logistics Industry in Hamburg and Taiwan”. The event is supported by the Taiwan International Logistics & Supply Chain Association as well as the Taiwan Association of Logistics Management.
During the seminar, representatives and industry experts will share their experience regarding current trends in the logistics industry in Taiwan and Germany, with a focus on business opportunities in Hamburg for Taiwanese logistics companies.
