Covid-19: A dry bulk leaders perspective

Covid-19: A dry bulk leaders perspective

(Posted on 26/08/20)

IBJ’s first ever webinar will take place just three weeks from today and is free to view.

Launched in 1981, IBJ has an established track record of keeping the global bulk cargo handling and shipping industry informed thorough its magazine, e-newsletter/website and IBJ Awards. This years’ IBJ Awards in Rotterdam have been postponed until November 2021, so to bring the global dry bulk industry together, IBJ has assembled an exceptionally high quality panel for this Webinar, Covid-19: A dry bulk leaders perspective, which will focus specifically on the lessons learnt in the industry as a result of the pandemic.

On 16th September, collectively and individually the panellists will share their experiences around the impact of COVID-19 on their business and the industry as a whole. They will discuss the key issues that have arisen, initiatives that have been implemented, lessons that have been learned, problems on the horizon and possible solutions for the future. A wide range of topics will be covered during the 90 minute Webinar, highlighting, for example, the impact on the dry bulk shipping market in the short and long term and impacts on regional ports and terminals.

The webinar will include panel discussion and opportunities for online viewers to raise their own questions to selected panellists.

The Speakers:

  • Paul Pathy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fednav Limited, Canada
  • Sander Rijsdijk, Director, Bulk Cargo and Shipping, Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • H.K. Joshi, Chairperson and Managing Director, The Shipping Corporation of India
  • Jan Dieleman, President, Ocean Transportation, Cargill, Switzerland
  • Morten Løvstad, Global Business Director - Bulk Carriers, DNV GL, Norway
  • Rajiv Agarwal, Chief Executive Officer, Essar Ports, India

The Webinar will focus on:

  • The financial impact on bulk shipping and ports
  • How have seafarer and dock worker welfare issues been addressed?
  • Impacts on regional ports and terminals, now and for the future
  • Will supply chains stay robust to prevent shortages of key raw materials in future?
  • How have shipowners and operators generally responded to crew change issues across their fleet?
  • The impact on the bulk shipping market in the short and long term
  • How has new technology enabled the bulk supply chain to continue?
  • What will the ‘new normal’ look like in 2021 and beyond?
