Map the logistics market in Hong Kong before jumping ship


I manage the procurement operations of a mid-sized logistics firm that is likely to be subject to M&A activity later this year, merging with a much bigger firm. It’s hard to tell whether this is a good or bad thing for me and my team and, subsequently, I’m not sure whether to stay or look for something new.

There’s a possibility that new opportunities will become apparent within the new company, but it’s just as possible that I’ll be deemed surplus to requirements and let go – and if that’s the case I’d rather have a head start when it comes to job-hunting. What’s the job market like in the industry at the moment and do you think I should jump before being pushed?
