MPV Fleet Analysis and Outlook: Rising Rates, a Shrinking Fleet and Growing Wariness

Wednesday, 27 April

9:10 am - 9:50 am (CST) / 27/apr/2022 02:10 pm - 27/apr/2022 02:50 pm

While the breakbulk shipping sector expects to see little disruption resulting directly from Russia’s attack on Ukraine, sector analysts see war-related uncertainty and hesitation affecting what had been a quite optimistic market view. Inflation, a new round of COVID-19 lockdowns in China, and potential shortages of food and other goods also are undermining confidence, while a changing oil and gas landscape could create new opportunities. In this roundtable discussion, three industry analysts will dig into the wait-and-see wariness and its effect on decision-making in the multipurpose/heavy-lift carrier market.
