Automotive Logistics Changes and Opportunities in Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia, a region is changing <br> <br> according to International Monetary Fund statistics show that in 2014, * the ASEAN + 3 countries (China, Japan, South Korea) has become the second largest economic area in the world, its gross domestic product The value reached 18.3 billion U.S. dollars, followed by the EU with a GDP of 18.5 billion U.S. dollars. In the past few years, the region’s economy has continued to grow despite a slight decline in 2015. Although ASEAN recorded its lowest growth rate (4.5%) since 2009, despite this, this alliance is still a boost to world economic growth.

The relative slowdown of China’s economic development and the rebalancing of the economy from industry to service, from investment to consumption, also bring advantages to this region. For example, Vietnam has benefited from the transfer of production bases in the Chinese textile industry and higher value added industries such as the electronics and mobile phone industries.

The increase in the number of teams perfectly explains the dynamic changes in this area. In 2016, China will become the world's largest auto market with more than 26 million vehicles sold. As for Indonesia, it currently produces more than 360,000 vehicles each year. Since 2012, its automobile export value has exceeded the value of imports from the industry.

In order to break into these markets, the alliance between manufacturers is increasing. Therefore, since the beginning of 2000, PSA Group, which has been through joint venture DPCA and Dongfeng Group, formally signed an agreement with Dongfeng Group in March 2014. With its expertise in vehicle and component parts, the attractiveness of the Asian automotive industry has enabled Gefco to position itself as a major player in the logistics business. Since 2009, Gefco has been responsible for the logistics and transportation of two plants owned by Shenlong Automobile Co., Ltd. in Wuhan, Hubei Province, and has managed the packaging and distribution of spare parts.

<br> <br> modern infrastructure and logistics infrastructure investment to support the development of the ASEAN + 3 region, the region constitutes a key market for international manufacturers, its location needs to be able to integrate the logistics of rail , sea and air transport.

Therefore, the latest figures from the World Shipping Council show that out of the top 30 ports in the world, 20 ports belong to ASEAN, and the top five ports are Shanghai, Singapore, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and South Korea's Busan. The five ports handle more than 130 billion standard containers each year. The Straits of Malacca through Singapore provides access to the region, maintaining a quarter of the world's cargo transportation.

At the same time, China intends to implement the “ Belt and Road” strategy to re-invest and modernize the connection between Southeast Asia and the rest of Eurasia, and to use the maritime and air silk roads to help modernize Africa’s transportation. In the south, the Maritime Silk Road connects the ports between Singapore and Hong Kong and Europe, and connects Africa through the Suez Canal. In the north, the land transport line connects Europe and East Asia quickly through a trans-Siberian railway. Another example of an infrastructure-oriented policy: Vietnam’s logistics infrastructure is rapidly modernizing. This process supports the country’s 2015 growth, bringing its economic growth rate to 6.7%, which is quite close to India’s 7.3% and China. 6.8%. Vietnam has developed deep-water ports such as Ho Chi Minh City-Gaimei-Shiweigang, which can handle 330,693, lbs of container ships. Now it has strengthened its water infrastructure to handle 20% of Vietnam's cargo transit. In fact, the Twelfth Vietnamese Communist Party Congress ended on January 28, 2016 established the goal of increasing the contribution of the maritime economy to the GNP to 55%. Vietnam also invested in a larger road network, including more than 1,700 kilometers of extensions, modernization of roads linking north and south, and modernization of railway networks and airports. For its part, the city-state Singapore has established itself as a strategic Hub for all logistics companies in the past few years. As for Indonesia, according to Frost & Sullivan's forecast, by 2020 its logistics industry will have a growth rate of 15.4%. Learn more about LCL services.
