APAC countries signed world's largest free trade agreement

On November 15, 2020, leaders from 15 Asia Pacific nations came to an agreement to form a free trade bloc under the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). The agreement is intended to facilitate trades among the member countries by removing tariffs and stimulate the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Main points at a glance:

  • RCEP is a free trade agreement in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • Fifteen countries signed the agreement including Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China,  Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.
  • With the participation of the 15 countries, they have formed the world's largest free trade zone, covering about 30% of the world's population and nearly 30% of global GDP.
  • China’s presence notably increases the impact of the agreement and boosts the total GDP of the RCEP member countries.
  • India did not join the partnership over concerns that cheap import products might pose a harm to local producers.
  • The new free trade zone is bigger than the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and the European Union.
  • The RCEP will reduce taxes on most goods over a 20-year period, streamline customs procedures, regulates the field of intellectual property and digital trade and replace a number of bilateral trade agreements in the region with one set of rules.
  • Some benefits are expected to be seen in 2021 once participate nations complete their domestic ratification procedures.

What does it mean to the global supply chain?

  • The RCEP is expected to eliminate a range of tariffs and quotas on most of the goods traded within the region over a 20-year period.
  • The "rules of origin” may have the biggest impact. Under RCEP, parts from any member nation would be treated equally, this gives companies in RCEP member countries an incentive to look for supplier within the region.
  • Many of the RCEP member countries already have bilateral free trade agreements between each other, RCEP would streamline the various overlapping preferential terms. This reduces complexity and reduce costs for businesses.
  • China, Japan and South Korea are the traditional key players for electronics, automotive, textiles and garments industries, having them in the RCEP would ensure supply chain stability to ASEAN countries.
  • It gives an incentive for companies to look for supplier within the RCEP member countries, thereby laying the foundation for enabling an accelerated GDP growth within the region.

As RCEP will further fuel the ongoing manufacturing shifts within Asia, it not only affects companies within the member countries but is also relevant to any companies worldwide who have business in the region.

US West Coast Port Situation

These delays are primarily due to the following reasons:

  • Large number of positive COVID-19 cases among port workers
  • General industry shortage of port personnel
  • The upcoming holiday season
  • Too few crane operators
  • Chassis shortages

This is not a single ocean carrier challenge, this is an industry challenge.

Our concern for the near future is that the situation will only become more dire. More vessels are in transit already and delays will continue to increase. The situation will be intensified further by the trucker shortage that the industry is already facing.

In preparation to minimize the effects of these delays, we here at DACHSER are working closely and tirelessly with our contacts to check on drayage capacity, transit times, unloading updates, and potential demurrage charges. 

Please schedule the picks ups of your container freight well in advance in order to avoid further delays at your supply chain, and to also avoid additional charges at the port, such as demurrage and detention. DACHSER are here to assist you during this time and to help arranging pick up options to save you time and money.

We will keep you up to date on the status of your shipments as well as the situation in the ports. Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact your local DACHSER representative.

We also encourage you to sign up to receive our E-Newsletter to receive industry updates as soon as they become available. This can be done through our website: https://www.dachser-news.com/?lang=en-HK

To mark the occasion: update of our Brexit checklist

The EU withdrawal of the United Kingdom was completed on 31.01.2020. Currently we are in a transition phase which ends on 31.12.2020. A further extension of this transitional phase should have been agreed until 01.07.2020 and is therefore no longer possible. Thus, the United Kingdom will no longer be part of the internal market and the customs union as of 01.01.2021. If no agreement is reached between the UK and the EU in the remaining time of the transition phase, trade would in future fall under the rules of the World Trade Organization.

We at DACHSER cannot influence the political situation in the UK, but we can prepare you in the best possible way for regulated customs procedures. We have therefore adapted and updated our Brexit checklist to the current circumstances. You can download it here free of charge.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your responsible contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.
