11:45 am - 12:30 pm (CST) / 25/apr/2024 04:45 pm - 25/apr/2024 05:30 pm

Cargoes, vessel types, stakeholders and regulations evolve relentlessly in the project cargo logistics sector and drive important changes in how this sector contracts for ocean transportation and other functions. Legislation such as the US Jones Act and the EU’s new Emissions Trading System (ETS) requirements only add to the complexity. This Breakbulk Academy session will analyze, discuss, and answer questions about contracting and vessel chartering. Charlie Papavizas is a partner and chair of maritime practice with Washington, DC-based Winston & Strawn and a well-known writer and authority on US flag-related regulations. In this session, he will focus on US-flag and cargo preference contracting. Stinne Taiger Ivø is deputy secretary general with the Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO), which has developed many of the standard maritime clauses and contracts used in global shipping. Stinne heads a team developing new charter party terms focused on EU ETS and on environmental regulations generally. This session offers a unique opportunity for industry newcomers and more experienced logisticians and chartering managers to learn from and ask questions of two knowledgeable, well-qualified experts.
