    Adapting on the Fly: Landside Lessons Learned in the Spillover Market

    Unprecedented congestion at ports and inland hubs sustained high container freight rates, and unreliable service and schedules have driven many shippers who normally ship their cargo in containers to look for solutions in the multipurpose, ro/ro, and general cargo sector. How should shippers weigh the pros and cons of shifting a significant portion of their cargo from boxes to breakbulk modes, or to moving containers on non-container ships? How do these mode shifts affect bills of lading, port, and terminal choices, discharge plans, drayage, container management, and scheduling? What is the role of the ocean carrier in managing this “spillover” phenomenon? In this session, logistics executives will discuss the opportunities and the complex challenges created when shippers shift cargo transport modes to the breakbulk side to better navigate the container "spillover" market.
