Force Majeure in a Congested, Late-COVID Shipping Market

Tuesday, 25 May

2:05 pm - 2:20 pm (EST) / 25/may/2021 06:05 pm - 25/may/2021 06:20 pm

The impacts of COVID-19 on the breakbulk supply chain have been extensive, snarling schedules and often dramatically increasing costs. Shippers are wondering what recourse they have when their logistics service providers claim COVID-related force majeure — and what recourse they may have with their own project clients when it comes to schedule slippage, sky-high freight rates, or congested ports. Liz Lowe, an international trade partner at maritime law specialist Venable LLP, will dig into the complexities of this critical issue as the COVID-19 pandemic begins to wane.
