With the worldwide pandemic now into its fourth quarter, dry bulk shipping operations worldwide have been hugely impacted. IBJ has assembled an influential panel of industry leaders to discuss the major challenges they are currently facing, the lessons that have been learned this year and possible future trends for the global industry.

  • The use of new technology to boost efficiency and support remote working
  • How are dry bulk ports and terminals adapting to changing global trade patterns and supply chains?
  • How will the pandemic affect current and planned infrastructure projects?
  • How has the crisis impacted the move to environmentally friendly technology?
