Box shipping rejuvenation – where next?
• Prelude Presentation
Speaker: John D’Ancona Head of Containership Research, Howe Robinson Partners
• Panel Discussion: Container shipping has been one of the counter-intuitive winners in the rough commercial seas whipped up by the Covid-19 pandemic. Assertive capacity control, strong alliances, and digital analysis have enabled container shipping lines and tonnage providers to profit after over a decade of poor margins.
We ask key figures in the lines and independent shipowners for insight into what changed in 2020, how firm are the market’s foundations, what has been the impact of technology, and what will be the implications for the years ahead?
Speakers: Clemens Toepfer Managing Director, Toepfer Transport, Simon Aust Managing Director, Blue Net Chartering, John Freydag Chief Commercial Officer, MPC Capital
