SINGAPORE, Oct. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan’s Global Vice President, Transportation & Logistics Practice, Mr. Gopal R will be speaking at the 2014 Asia Pacific 3PL and Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum in Singapore.

The forum, organized by eyefortransport, will be held from 4-5 Nov at the Novotel Clarke Quay hotel. Frost & Sullivan is also the Knowledge Partner for the event.

Mr. Gopal R will be sharing his views on trends and outlook for the Asia Pacific logistics industry. He will also be exploring the market conditions that are driving decisions in the logistics industry, and how it will affect the sector.

In an earlier report, Frost & Sullivan is forecasting the Asia Pacific transportation and logistics market of 12 countries (Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Vietnam and Indonesia) to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6 per cent (2011-2016) to reach US$4.09 trillion in 2016.

Sea freight will be the key transport mode for freight movement in Asia Pacific, handling more than 60 per cent of total freight traffic in the 12 countries researched.

Logistics end-users are becoming much more sophisticated and demand more from their service providers. He added that customers want more visibility in supply chain from their logistics service providers to optimize inventory, improve forecasting, increase communication and establish smoother supply chains.

He added that with the rising awareness of green issues globally, industry players will need to co-ordinate sustainable logistics practice in a way that meets customer requirements at minimum cost.

"Greening logistics operations include lower CO2 emission, more efficient use of fuel and also cutbacks in consumption of power, water, paper and other commodities," he said.

The Asia Pacific 3PL Summit, co-located with the Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum, is a high level gathering of senior logistics executives in the Asia region. It aims to bring together executives and thought leaders in logistics and supply chain to network, learn and discuss various trends and share ideas on achieving growth in Asia.
