Chinese President Xi Jinping made a series of trips to Eastern Europe in 2016 as part of his advocacy campaign for the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (OBOR).

By asking what trends can disrupt the dominant design for distribution in the US, Caplice suggests there are five potential disruptive driving forces. Trend #1—Densification of Products. “This is the process of reducing product size while maintaining or increasing its value. Examples of densification include laundry detergent (shifting […]
