     a hotelier – is that growing interest in the region will only foster better business practices,

Shanghai is leading the country’s retail development, which is driving the logistics sector forward.
But, despite several supply chain parts already in place, local industry standards still lag behind.

 The sector has seen a threefold increase over two years, rising from
314 foreign retailers in 2004 to 1,000 in 2006, says Trent Iliffe, Head
of Industrial, China, of the global property management firm. “That
impact is starting to filter through to logistics operators, suppliers
and buyers,” he says. The next largest logistics driver in China is the
automobile industry, at 15.80 per cent.

What Retailers Require
Thus far, China still presents daunting challenges for logistics operators
and retailers alike. That the country’s land mass is so vast and varied
demands more and more developed infrastructure – as impressive as
some of that may be – and not just that which surrounds urban com-
mercial centres along the coast. Operators say industry-wide standards
are still lagging behind, causing inefficiencies throughout the national
network. All of which add up to the reality that operating at an efficient
level here commands a high cost.
  Logistics spending occupies 20 per cent of company GDP in China. Or, as
Ritchie puts it in retailing terms, that’s 20 per cent of “the cost of goods
sold”. In mature markets in Europe and North America, for example,
logistics costs are half that, at nine to 10 per cent. “It’s important to
control this cost in order to be competitive globally,” says Iliffe.
  On the ground, meanwhile, and in the stores, the cost of inefficiencies
is as much about numbers as it is about customer satisfaction. “Unfiled
shelf space or late deliveries equate immediately to lost sales for our
clients,” says Ritchie of Meridian IQ, whose customers are in retail,
apparel and consumer packaged goods, among other industries. “Our
clients must be able to replenish stock regularly and react quickly to

   China – or 20 per cent of “the
   cost of goods sold”.
market trends while maintaining and monitoring the inventory levels
closely, as too much inventory increases costs, may spoil or will be
out of fashion.”
  In large part, logistics services providers act as proxies in the supply
chain for their retail customers, who, in turn, depend on operators, such
as Meridian IQ or the Switzerland-based Kuehne + Nagel, to manage
the flow of goods. “Retailers require the assistance of logistics provid-
ers in managing the vendors and orders, in order to ensure on-time
shipping with advance notice,” says Andy Weber, Managing Director
of Kuehne + Nagel (Asia Pacific) Management Ltd.

Assurance in Visibility
Visibility is a commonly used term and concept for logistics opera-
tors – that is, knowing precisely where the goods are en route, at any
given point between warehouse and store. “Retail and consumer goods
customers need full reporting and visibility as to what and when de-
tailed line items are shipped,” says Yvonne Lim, Regional Manager,
North China, of BDP International. “It must meet certain marketing
and product launch deadlines throughout different times of the year,
especially around the festive season.”
