Theme: A New Chapter For Container Shipping
With 2016 marked by unprecedented consolidation and 2017 already proving disruptive due to alliance changes and a severe European export capacity crunch, how should European shippers strategically and tactically approach container transportation in the current, rapidly evolving environment? Several key trends are underway: much higher scrapping levels, a major slowdown in vessel ordering, further consolidation possible, and new opportunities including viability of routing through the Mediterranean gateway, rapid Asia-Europe rail expansion, and advances in technology that can drive efficiencies and lower costs. With a program dedicated to the needs of shippers/BCOs operating in Europe, the Container Trade Europe program will cut to the chase and get answers to key questions shippers have regarding their container shipping strategies.
