According to the senior executives of the transport sector, it is possible to collect significant changes in the sector within the next 10 year under the 5 megatrend:

Uncertainty of geopolitical instability and regulation:

Uncontrollable events such as war, terrorism and forced migration caused 2015 billion dollars to be added to supply chain costs in 56. The results of this and similar events have been mentioned with millions of dollars until recently, and today, billions of dollars are spoken.

Complex business models:

The interconnectedness of physical and digital global supply chains requires companies to bear the consequences of risk. Even the never-ending growth desire drags transport companies into volatile new markets and uncomplicated collaborations, and even companies in a position to deal with challenges are affected by the weaknesses of third parties.

Digital vulnerabilities and rapid technological advances:

The increasing connectivity of the digital marketplace requires a collective resolution of the risk-related problems. Very few companies can fully control the effectiveness of their solutions in this area. While the pace of technological changes continues to increase, the resistance to risk can be achieved through communication and innovation.

Talent management and complexities of global workforce:

While the "Baby Boomer" generation is preparing to retire, the transport companies are about to remain alone with the shortage of talent. While technological developments bring about transformation in companies, the focus of management is shifting from finding enough people to finding the right people with the right set of skills and creating a business environment where these competences can be held in a market where competition is growing.

Changing market dynamics and business model insecurity:

Pressures to improve more dynamic business models on the managers of transport sector are increasing. When traditional barriers such as commodity price fluctuations and interest rates, competitive capital availability, emerging markets and variable consumer demands are combined with non-traditional competitors, there is distrust in the sector about existing business models.
