    Ports, Terminals, and Breakbulk: Realigned Relationships in a Decarbonizing World

    A new era of supply chain complexities and increasingly competitive cargo markets is pressuring ports and terminals like never before. How best can ports, terminals, carriers, and shippers work together to address congestion, port choice, decarbonization, green fuels, labor, and other issues affecting performance and efficiency — or the lack thereof? The pandemic market shocked shippers and logistics service providers by forcing them to see how vulnerable they are to supply chain snarls. What’s changed now that the market is turning, and what behaviors and choices are reverting to old norms and patterns? How do ports and terminals improve productivity, address users’ needs, make better use of existing assets, and gear up for the responsibilities that will increasingly come with facilitating decarbonization? This roundtable discussion will bring together port users and service providers to examine these complex questions.
