SEVENTY-FIVE per cent of survey respondents in Asia Pacific believe electric vehicles will have a significant impact on transport in the next two years and 82 per cent say they need help to navigate environmental regulations, according to a DHL survey.

The survey polled 200 supply chain professionals, from automotive, consumer, life sciences, technology, engineering and manufacturing spread around the world.



The global survey found that while 75 per cent of Asia Pacific respondents believed in electric vehicles, this compared to the global average of 53 per cent.



DHL Supply Chain, used data from Los Angeles-based Lieberman Research Worldwide, commissioned by DHL to identify the factors impacting ground transportation.



DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific transport chief Sean Gillespie, head of transport, DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific said:



'Asia Pacific is diverse but there are factors common to many countries. These include growing urbanisation, and concerns that need green solutions,' said DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific transport chief Sean Gillespie.



Two trends will have a significant impact on transport. The rise of e-commerce is seen as a trend of significant impact in three to five years by 78 per cent of Asia Pacific respondents compared with 69 per cent globally.



Also more appreciated by 71 per cent of Asia Pacific firms polled was the increasing urbanisation in the next two years, versus 61 per cent of respondents globally.



Said Mr Gillespie: 'AI and Big Data are seen by Asia Pacific respondents as the trend with the biggest impact in the next couple of years; in fact, 67 per cent already incorporate them in their business in some way.'
