During this time, it is tradition for business to take a look back at how their past year went, as well as giving an outlook as to what they foresee happening in the upcoming year.
Many political events and decisions made in the past few months have left the world in awe. Terrorist attacks and the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe have led to a sense of insecurity among our fellow citizens in the EU, and have reinforced the impact that possible threats have upon every individual.
New presidents in the US, South America and Southeast Asia have all either already taken power, or will do so in the coming year. It remains to be seen how these voters ‘choices will affect world peace, the global economy and the cooperation of all nations.
It is clear that there will be some changes. Promises of many kinds have been made, but only time will tell how the future will unfold. This will be exciting to watch!
Of course there is also some news from within the Senator group. In order to further increase our global network, we have once again opened some new offices throughout the past year. We were able to welcome new colleagues in Vietnam, and have continued our successful development in Mexico, with offices in Queretaro, Guadalajara and Puebla.
This past November we launched a new Boeing 747-400 freighter from Germany to South Carolina, which now has two weekly departures. Our product „Senator Atlantic Bridge“or SAB for short connects Europe with the economic centers in the South East of the USA. The new Senator branch located at the Greenville Airport in South Carolina ensures a smooth handling of both import and export shipments. Short distances will guarantee savings in time and cost for our customers on both sides of the Atlantic.
We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year. We look forward to continuing together with great cooperation on both ends.
Yours, Uwe Kirschbaum and Tim-Oliver Kirschbaum
