ON DEMAND Trans-Pacific Maritime

ON DEMAND Trans-Pacific Maritime

Timed to run in the aftermath of the 14th Annual JOC TPM Conference, this Webcast will focus on the supply and demand of container space in the trans-Pacific trade, the economic fundamentals driving it and what it means for intermodal rail, industrial real estate and other segments of the supply chain. The big test for carriers this year is whether they’ll be able to manage vessel capacity in a way that limits the effect of the huge amount of new ships scheduled to be delivered. Several factors will help determine early in the year how that will play out, including the planned spring launch of the P3 Network among Maersk Line, CMA CGM and Mediterranean Shipping Co. and the response by other carriers and alliances. The true measure of that test will come later in the spring, when shippers and carriers wrap up annual service contracts.

This Webcast will feature JOC Economist Mario Moreno, who will discuss his latest forecasts for trans-Pacific import and export demand; and AlixPartners’ P. Foster Finley, Jr., who will deliver the results of his company’s latest survey on global sourcing trends.
