How ports and shipping keep goods moving as the world stands still

In this webcast, panelists discuss impacts of COVID-19 and look at how the industry can weather the storm caused by the pandemic.

Join Maritime London and EY trade professionals across the globe as they explore the challenges and risks COVID-19 has created for the ports’ ecosystem — and how it’s responding.

Over 80% of goods are transported by sea, making ports, their terminals and shipping lines the backbone of global trade. Collaboration between this ecosystem is essential to keeping goods flowing and economies running. This means that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on supply and demand has had a profound effect on an industry that is already challenged by trade disruption.

Discussion topics include:

  • The knock-on effect that supply chains disrupted by COVID-19 are having on ports, terminals and shipping lines
  • The immediate challenges facing port and terminal operators
  • How port operators, terminal operators and shippers need to adapt to a dramatically different global trade environment
  • How port ecosystems work with each other and their partners on a level playing field
