    Deciphering the Multipurpose Market: Analysts and Shippers Assess the Indicators

    What lies ahead for the multipurpose vessel sector — and how do we know this? Given the complexity of the MPV market, no single index can supply all the answers that shippers and logistics service providers would like to have. What indicators beyond those derived from the MPV fleet are the most useful, and how do shippers and logistics transportation providers use them? What more might be provided or created? In this session, leading industry analysts will share their outlooks for the MPV market and discuss how these forecasts are produced and what else might be possible.
