The pandemic did not do much harm to world trade

On the oc­ca­sion of this year’s trans­port lo­gis­tic (con­fer­ence for lo­gis­tics, mo­bil­i­ty, IT, and sup­ply chain man­age­ment, May 4–6, 2021), the two trade ex­perts Ralph Ossa, Di­rec­tor of the Kühne Cen­ter and Mar­cos Ri­tel, Pro­fes­sor at Kühne Lo­gis­tics Uni­ver­si­ty eval­u­at­ed and dis­cussed the de­vel­op­ment of glob­al trade dur­ing the coro­na pan­dem­ic. At the Talk on the Red Sofa of the Deutsche Verkehrs-Zeitung (DVZ), they pre­sent­ed their as­sess­ment, show­ing that glob­al de­mand for goods re­cov­ered quick­ly af­ter a brief slump. How­ev­er, it re­mains un­cer­tain what would hap­pen if gov­ern­ment sup­port mea­sures were re­duced at some point.
