This exclusive, shipper-only discussion facilitated by JOC Senior Editor Janet Nodar will bring together breakbulk and project cargo shippers in an off-the-record meeting to exchange ideas and potential solutions to the numerous challenges confronting stakeholders in the North American supply chain while learning what they expect to learn from the conference sessions and panelists over the coming two days. BY INVITATION ONLY FOR SHIPPERS
While the breakbulk shipping sector expects to see little disruption resulting directly from Russia’s attack on Ukraine, sector analysts see war-related uncertainty and hesitation affecting what had been a quite optimistic market view. Inflation, a new round of COVID-19 lockdowns in China, and potential shortages of food and other goods also are undermining confidence, while a changing oil and gas landscape could create new opportunities. In this roundtable discussion, three industry analysts will dig into the wait-and-see wariness and its effect on decision-making in the multipurpose/heavy-lift carrier market.
