ITD looks forward to close partner race with new growth team for trade and logistics
The Danish Minister of Trade and Industry, Brian Mikkelsen, revealed at ITD’s General Assembly 14 April 2018 a little about the Danish Government having a concrete initiative on the way which the transport and logistics industry can look forward to.
Now, the Government has announced that a growth team for trade and logistics will be established to make recommendations to strengthen possibilities and growth potential by such as e-commerce, digital readjustment and secure uniform rules. The growth team will consist of a wide range of companies within trade and logistics.
- We are pleased, that the Government has listened to us and established a growth team for trade and logistics. We have worked a long time for that. And now we are ready to deliver all the input and all the work the growth team needs in the road transport of goods area, says Carina Christensen, CEO at ITD.
- Denmark is a strong international player in the road transport of goods area, and that we want to continue to be. But if it is shall be possible, it requires that the transport companies are equipped to be able to utilise the digital and technological possibilities making them able to go the distance in a market characterised by strong international competition. Here we believe that increased focus from the Government with a growth team for trade and logistics can contribute to prepare Danish transport and logistics companies for the challenges, says Carina Christensen.
Parallel with the growth team of the Danish Minister of Trade and Industry, ITD has established its own growth panel being broadly selected by transport researchers, transport buyers and road hauliers with different perspectives on the road transport of goods industry.
- We are looking forward to a close partner race between ITD’s growth panel for road transport of goods and the Government’s slightly wider growth team for trade and logistics. We see good opportunities for a strong interaction and we will do ours to visualise the great importance of the road transport of goods in the joint logistics chain, says Carina Christensen.
