Trade Lane Management

Additional Expertise

The principle of trade lane management focuses on business between two countries and identifying untapped opportunities. It is developing, managing, planning, and monitoring cargo traffic between two country’s ports and airports.

Connecting Europe to India

A ‘trade lane’ specifically refers to the established routes and pathways that goods follow during import and export activities. In addition, development on routes, global trends, planning of shipments or business as per trade agreement between the said countries, political climate and weather conditions are aspects that influence the effectiveness of Trade Lane Management.
