Sea freight pricing has traditionally been an uneasy compromise between shippers and carriers balancing contract and spot rates, volume and capacity.

The COVID-pandemic has destabilised the market and with carriers rates and profits reaching new heights, it is providing the catalyst to accelerate many initiatives, from carrier consolidation, digital forwarding, transcontinental rail and near shoring.

Is sea freight facing an existential crisis, or is there a possible future that suits carriers, forwarders and shippers.
The session will address the question What is a sustainable cost for sea freight which allows:

  • Carriers to achieve a satisfactory return and invest in environmental efficiency
  • Shippers to enjoy cost effective, resilient, and sustainable supply chains
