Global transportation bottlenecks: Will ordering more ships be enough?

Strong consumer demand and strains on shipping have forced container ship operators to rush in expanding their fleets. However, with problems persisting throughout the whole transport and logistics supply chain – spanning from port and warehouse capacity to the ability of logistics networks to deliver goods to their final consumers – will this be enough? In this webinar, we take a look at the different transportation bottlenecks which remain a serious problem to global supply chains.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:

  • APAC – Monday 10th January | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Monday 10th January | 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Monday 10th January | 16:00 EST
