Can you give an overview of your conference topic/session?
My topic is Intermodalized China.
What can attendees expect to learn and discover from your session?
Chinese government will focus on developing the systematized intermodality with Chinese characteristics in the next 5 to 10 years. According to investigation data, recognition degree of intermodality has been increasing for the past several years in China.
What do you think is the biggest issue being faced/discussed in your industry at the moment?
The redundancy of transportation capacity and the excessive cost control.
What is the biggest lesson you learned in 2016?
Well, when there's healthy, there's everything...
What do you think the biggest challenge for the industry will be in 2017?
It's hard to say at this moment.
What innovative measures should the industry adopt in the next few years to ensure market sustainability and growth?
Shipping industry: capacity cut, capacity cut, more capacity should be cut asap. Intermodality industry: let more and more interrelated people know the cost advantages directly brought by this kind of logistics model.
Why do you think events like Intermodal Asia are important for the industry?
Intermodality industry is still in the ascendant in Asia, meetings for sharing experience are far from enough.
