With container markets heading into their third year of historically disruptive turmoil, everyone from shippers and forwarders to terminal operators and drayage carriers is looking for signs of improvement in service on the water and cargo flow through the ports. Whether it’s port congestion, berth productivity, freight rates, vessel delays, blank sailings, schedule reliability, import volumes, lost capacity, transit times, or inventories, container shipping stakeholders have had to cope with unrelenting pressure in moving goods from origin to destination. Using exclusive data from IHS Markit and shipping analyst Sea-Intelligence, this session will examine the primary service issues confronting shippers while their goods are in transit, from loading at origin to offloading at the berth.
