Join the ‘Q4 Shipping Market Outlook webinar’ live on BIMCO’s YouTube channel.
6. Mediterranean Bunker Fuel and Shipping Virtual Conference
The overall state of the industry is dominated by the impact of the pandemic. But below the headlines we have seen a lot of different developments in 2020 – What lies ahead for the shipping sector?
Changing trade patterns – caused by increased awareness of the vulnerability of supply chains, as well as economies’ interdependence – is something shipping will most probably have to adapt to in the coming years. The scale of this could be tremendous. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that 16-26% of global trade could be relocated in the medium term. This would involve some combination of a return to domestic production, near-shoring and shifting to other offshore locations, with a new balance needed between just in time and just in case.
In this context, Sand, will participate at the Mediterranean Bunker Fuel and Shipping Virtual Conference on 26 November from 11:35 CET and share his views on the challenges ahead for the commercial shipping markets, focusing on the current developments dominating the markets and the geopolitical factors impacting the global supply chains.
