Panalpina is a Swiss 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) company. The global environment that is logistics moves and flexes just like the economy. As such, Panalpina as a global entity puts all of their focus on the emerging markets and while North America is still a hub of global freight movement, Panalpina has most of the investments in Indo-China and emerging Asian markets. As such, employees are commonly told that American production is below expectation and support and promotion are not adequate. It's hard to compete here against the largest movers of freight (UPS, FedEx, DHL) when little investment is made on this continent. Even so, Panalpina is recognized as one of the world leaders.
