While the weak economy, the threat of war and the cost of complying with new security mandates will pose major challenges for all forwarders this year, Greg Burns, an analyst with J.P. Morgan Chase, sounded a hopeful note.
"The 2003 air environment is shaping up to be very positive for the freight forwarders," he said, citing recovering air volumes and the continuing capacity glut on international routes. "That should allow forwarders to achieve good economics on their volumes," he said. Burns said he expects rates to firm this year, but he does not anticipate a sharp sudden increase. As a result, forwarders should be able to easily pass along any increases.
Forwarders can only hope that he's right.
