Today's Topics – Perspectives from Carriers and Partners

Though EPCs and project owners have attempted to stay cautiously optimistic throughout the recent industry downturn, it’s unclear if the cargo pipeline is strong enough to sustain ocean carriers through another year. There are encouraging signs, such as Anadarko’s recent FID in Mozambique, but will projects on the drawing boards and in the bidding stages be ready to move before more carriers leave the business?
 
Carriers are looking at other options to stay afloat, such as consolidation, retrenchment of service lanes and broadening the scope of their services. Meanwhile, everyone is keeping a weather eye on the global tariff situation and the imminent implementation of IMO2020 – hoping the threatening skies will clear. In this session, we’ll hear executive perspectives on these hot industry topics.
