This week we have kicked-off our new Maersk Customs Client Forums.
Customs has never been more important than now, but it will be more important tomorrow. We will see more changes for international trade in the next five years than we have seen in the last fifty.
To meet these new challenges we are region-by-region rolling out a series of round-table events where we invite our customers, local Customs and other supply chain stakeholders to listen and learn, shaping our new innovative Customs concept – as an integrated and interactive part of the end-to-end offer under the Maerks Integrator Strategy.
With the Client Forums we want to create a platform forum for exchange of views, knowledge and competence on Customs between all stakeholders of the supply chain. Even more importantly we want to listen.
This week we started this new initiative in Asia-Pacific with two successful Client Forum events in Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok.
The second Client Forum in Bangkok had to change meeting rooms two times to get larger space due to the overwhealming interest from our customers.
Thank you to everybody involved, especially to our customers and to Vitnamese Customs and Thai Customs for participating in these dialogue events.
Watch out we are soon coming to a city near you and we want to hear your view, the promise is – we will listen.
