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.

The Multipurpose Fleet – Outlook, Supply and Demand

The increasing rise of regulatory uncertainty and trade wars create pressures on cargo demand, along with a host of other factors.

Susan Oatway will present the latest updates for the MPV fleet based on Drewry’s Multipurpose Shipping Market Review and Forecast.
 
Join this session for an expert analysis of the factors influencing questions such as:

  • What impact will global GDP and trade issues have on fleet size?
  • What role does carrier financial health play in researching an RFP?
  • Will vessel availability and average age stay within guidelines for proposals?
  • How has carrier consolidation influenced the market?
