Panjiva Daily: CH Robinson’s troubles; Pegatron and Hon Hai’s divergent strategies

Global 1354 Panjiva Daily 691

CH Robinson has reported a slump in profitability in Q4 2019 – a push to grow its Europe-to-U.S. business may have contributed. Pegatron is opening new factories in Vietnam and Indonesia while Hon Hai remains committed to China. Also: Whirlpool’s price rises helped by tariffs which cut import demand; one hurdle left for USMCA, then the hard work begins; Trump’s deficit victory still a ways off, phase 1 effect may be delayed; the end of the beginning for Brexit; and coronavirus impact may worsen as holiday breaks are extended.
