China Logistics News Wrapup

With another week of gloomy news about the global crisis, you would have thought trade were coming to a standstill, and those that facilitate it.

More than any other week though, this week has been a busy one, and perhaps we should thank the good folks in Beijing for that as Beijing to spend billions on transportation and China to invest 1 tln yuan in transportation were the headlines of the week – need to keep people employed!

the rest of the news shows a lot of movement as well across all sectors, and with many seeing volumes on the downside, I expect we will begin seeing the data in the next few weeks.

I already have heard of a truck maker whose sales are off 96%!  96%… Yikes!
