    Disruption Management: Breakbulk Shippers and Service Providers Come to Grips With the Next Normal

    Capacity rules the roost in 2022. Unprecedented congestion in the container market continues to distort breakbulk logistics even as the energy sector shows signs of recovery amid rising oil prices. As tonnage remains tight and rates climb, project and breakbulk shippers are struggling to find multipurpose capacity at reasonable costs, service is suffering, and securing reliable container transport, once almost an afterthought, can be an exercise in frustration. As capex spending recovers from the COVID slowdown, how will logistics executives navigate a market that has changed so profoundly from the pre-pandemic landscape? From forwarding bookings to finding skilled employees, all previous assumptions are on the table. This roundtable discussion will tackle the top-of-mind issues for project shippers and their service providers in this capacity-is-king environment.
