    The State of Online Ocean Freight Quoting

     Maersk Line and Hapag-Lloyd both reported sequentially increasing uptake of digital quoting tools in 2020, while a number of other container lines and many of the top 25 global forwarders now have such capability. Add smaller NVOs and freight rate marketplaces into the mix and shippers have an eye-watering number of options from which to secure an instant rate. Is this the way the market will eventually go? Will instant quoting replace spot rates? How important are these transactional tools to the digital ambitions of container lines and large forwarders?

    Using a Data-based Approach to Freight Procurement and Allocation

    The data exists for shippers, carriers and intermediaries to be more precise in determining when they need and have space on container ships. In essence, data could lead the industry away from destructive behavior that benefits neither the provider nor consumer of ocean capacity. This session will examine how rate benchmarking and tendering tools might help shippers better map out their allocations if aligned with a strong demand forecasting process. All of these are critical in any year, but particularly so in a year of upheaval like 2020 and uncertainty like 2021.

    Forwarding Technology on the Front Burner

    Forwarders are on the front lines of the barrage of technology being aimed at container shipping, a situation that presents a threat and an opportunity for intermediaries of all sizes. The question is, should a forwarder prioritize back-end operations or its customer interface for technology investment? And what hurdles are there once that decision is made. Standing still isn’t an option, but moving in the wrong direction can put a forwarder off course. This session will explore how providers and customers in this fast-moving market should game-plan over the coming year.

    The Role Technology Plays in Defining Shipping’s Decarbonization Future

    Sustainability has long been a difficult-to-define metric in the world of international logistics, and so it’s generally a variable that factors into procurement and freight management decisions far below rates and service levels. But over the past year, a bevy of forwarders and technology providers has developed products and calculators that seek to help make these considerations less abstract, more concrete, and thus more actionable.

    Global TMS as the Gateway to Other Services

    TMS is no modern innovation — indeed, the concept of a global TMS linking supply chain and logistics partners and based on the power of the internet is entering its third decade. But a new breed of systems is emerging with a more open mindset, one where the TMS isn’t a turnkey and static fix but rather a vehicle to incorporate a range of ancillary products and services, predominantly through application programming interface. This session will examine what the next decade of TMS innovation is likely to look like.

    The Global Economic Outlook From IHS Markit’s Nariman Behravesh

    As the tumultuous year of 2020 came to a close, IHS Markit Chief Economist Nariman Behrevash was in no mood to celebrate despite the recent positive results in clinical trials for a COVID-19 vaccine. The second wave of COVID-19 surging in North America and Europe means “the downside risks to the near-term forecast have risen,” he wrote in late November. “Even before the recent surge in infections, IHS Markit economists were predicting growth would fade in the closing months of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. That fade is morphing into something worse. Once again, the near-term global economic outlook has worsened, and the most likely policy mix looks to be suboptimal.” Behravesh, who has spoken at every TPM since 2015, is consistently rated by attendees as among the most popular speakers on the agenda. He directs the entire economic forecasting process at IHS Markit and is responsible for developing the economic outlook and risk analysis for the US, Europe, Japan, China, and other emerging markets. He oversees the work of more than 400 professionals, located in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa who cover economic, financial, and political developments in more than 200 countries. Behravesh and his team have received numerous awards, among them the 2017 Lawrence R. Klein Blue Chip Forecast Accuracy Award and top forecasters by Consensus Economics in 2013.

    Marine Operations and Supply Side Challenges: The Carrier View From ONE’s Jeremy Nixon

    The marine container network faced exceptional challenges in 2020, and recovering will last well into 2021. From a carrier perspective, there was no downtime in the second half of 2020 to recover as operations, berth occupancy, and terminal utilization in Asia and North America reached record levels. The introduction of extra loaders exacerbated the situation. Weather, including elevated wave heights and numerous storm systems created further delays, as did COVID-related diversions to crew change locations and COVID testing of crews. Ocean Network Express CEO Jeremy Nixon will explain why carriers expect the industry's marine network to face continuing challenges in the first quarter of 2021, and potentially beyond.

    The Route to Zero-Emission Shipping: A Shipper-Carrier Dialogue

    Shippers and container lines will put the hard questions to each other, taking the discussion around container shipping decarbonization beyond the theoretical and toward tangible operational actions. In this novel format, shipper and container line executives will question each other on what they’re doing to meet increasingly stringent mandates to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This will illuminate how cost-sensitive carriers and shippers can achieve incremental environmental victories, bringing them closer to what will ultimately be a fossil fuel-free future.

    Marine Operations and Supply Side Challenges: The Carrier View From ONE’s Jeremy Nixon

    The marine container network faced exceptional challenges in 2020, and recovering will last well into 2021. From a carrier perspective, there was no downtime in the second half of 2020 to recover as operations, berth occupancy, and terminal utilization in Asia and North America reached record levels. The introduction of extra loaders exacerbated the situation. Weather, including elevated wave heights and numerous storm systems created further delays, as did COVID-related diversions to crew change locations and COVID testing of crews. Ocean Network Express CEO Jeremy Nixon will explain why carriers expect the industry's marine network to face continuing challenges in the first quarter of 2021, and potentially beyond.

    The Route to Zero-Emission Shipping: A Shipper-Carrier Dialogue

    Shippers and container lines will put the hard questions to each other, taking the discussion around container shipping decarbonization beyond the theoretical and toward tangible operational actions. In this novel format, shipper and container line executives will question each other on what they’re doing to meet increasingly stringent mandates to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This will illuminate how cost-sensitive carriers and shippers can achieve incremental environmental victories, bringing them closer to what will ultimately be a fossil fuel-free future.
