    Post-Pandemic Positioning: The Project Shipper's Perspective

    Cargo owners such as EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) companies and equipment manufacturers are quickly gaining confidence about their post-pandemic prospects as the energy transition takes hold. While 2020 pullbacks in oil and gas projects meant staff cuts and evolving responsibilities for many, other shippers are wrestling with congestion, cargo delays, and equipment shortages as transition-powered business boom, with no letup in sight. This panel of project cargo logistics executives will discuss supply chain pain points, industry issues, and their expectations for the energy transition.
