Much of the blame for longer lead times, poor schedule reliability, and capacity that has been idled or slowed, all contributing to higher ocean rates, can be laid at the feet of network dislocation — the carrier and alliance services unable to operate pursuant to pro-forma planning because of port shutdowns, weather, accidents, or other factors. Until carriers can get services back on schedule, the industry will continue to face severe challenges in container supply chains. This presentation and Q&A with ONE CEO Jeremy Nixon, led by leading analyst Lars Jensen, will explore what is impacting networks, how reliability can be restored, and who should take charge to make it happen.
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
