Container Shipping: Revolution or Evolution?

Round-table webinar on 21st January 2021 : 14.30-16.00 GMT

Disruption from Covid-19, Brexit, Digitalisation and other market changes are requiring a re-set; a different approach to managing supply chains. What strategies can shippers expect from their 3PLs & shipping lines?

Gain insight:

Importers, exporters, retailers and 3PLs should attend this webinar to get an inside view as to how ocean shipping will evolve over the next 5-10 years. Hear:

> How are lines managing the move from analogue, to digitalisation on to digitisation? And what will this mean for shippers and 3PLs?
> How will data inform their strategies?
Is the day of the traditional line coming to an end? Will they, like Maersk, and possibly HMM, become integrated logistics suppliers?
What do 3PLs want from their lines, given the above? 
Will covid lead to a shift in how supply chains link together?
