    Post-Pandemic Positioning: The Project Forwarder's Perspective

    Project forwarders are facing a rapidly changing breakbulk market as delayed projects come back to life and cargo space gets scarcer in the face of pent-up demand and rising freight costs. Following cuts to internal staff in 2020, shippers are handling fewer logistics functions on their own, which creates opportunities for project forwarders but also means staffing up, renewing or refreshing skill sets, and, often, taking on more risk. Meanwhile, the post-pandemic, early-energy transition market requires more adaptability than ever. This panel of deeply experienced forwarders will discuss managing risk, costs, and opportunities in this tricky but improving market.
