Perhaps no other global shipping analyst has as broad and progressive a lens as Lars Jensen. Since 2018, the former Maersk executive, shipping entrepreneur, author, and, most recently, Vespucci Maritime founder has closed out TPM with his short-, medium- and long-term vision of what is next for the global containerized shipping market, whether it be the next wave of technology, aggressive zero-emission shipping targets, or provider-shipper relationships. Now, Lars will offer his perspective of what the past two pandemic-fueled years — a period so disruptive as to have flipped the industry upside-down — mean for the future of shipping. Among the questions and topics he’ll address are:
· How will the transition period away from the pandemic unfold in 2022-2023?
· What will emerge as the new normality in 2023-2030?
· Who stands to win and lose in the new normality?
· The transitional period and emergence of yet another normality in 2030-2050
