Should I switch roles to beat the supply chain slump?


As a freight forwarding manager working in-house at a container port, I’ve seen Hong Kong’s freight movements dropping recently and more companies turning to external parties for supply chain management. With the industry seemingly heading in this direction, I’m thinking that I can make more money and have a bigger scope of work if I move to a third- or fourth-party logistics provider. Do you see many people making this move and is it a wise one given the economic climate?
