Midyear Breakbulk and Project Cargo Report: MPV Fleet Update and the Second-Half Outlook

Calendar icon

Multipurpose and heavy-lift charter rates have drifted lower but stabilized over the summer even as long-term carrier sentiment remains positive, supported by a healthy demand outlook and tightening capacity. While the minor bulk trades are seeing limited activity, cargo related to industrial and infrastructure-related markets has begun to pick up momentum. What can cargo shippers and logistics service providers expect as we move into the second half of 2023?

This midyear breakbulk and project cargo outlook webcast will examine fleet supply, fleet makeup and the demand picture, as breakbulk and project cargo research analyst Susan Oatway presents the findings of the first Journal of Commerce Breakbulk Quarterly Report. Industry executives will join the session for an in-depth discussion of the report’s implications.

Midyear Trucking Report: The Second-Half Outlook

Calendar icon

 Partner

           

Trucking’s crystal ball isn’t just cloudy, it’s been cracked by a high level of economic uncertainty and the volatile events of 2023. A major strike or the loss of a large carrier could flip the market just as shippers prepare for the fall shipping season and overstocked inventories give way to replenishment. But shippers and carriers also could continue mapping the market bottom they reached in the second quarter. How much of a surge in demand should we expect for trucking services this fall? How should shippers be thinking not just about the second half but early 2024, when some see a tighter market emerging? 

This webcast — which will serve as an early look at some of the industry issues to be addressed at the Inland Distribution Conference on Sept. 25-27 in Chicago — will discuss these questions and all topics related to the trucking outlook.

Eliminating Data Silos at Origin: Turning Ocean Carrier Email Updates into Competitive Advantage

Calendar icon

Partner

Email and PDF attachments are still fully embedded in the ocean freight booking process. Most origin teams must open, read and interpret thousands of carrier email communications to keep systems updated and freight moving every day. Limited human capacity and data silos have presented significant hurdles until now.

Generative AI-enabled technology is consuming and interpreting information in any format, any system, and any portal. This is a huge opportunity for one of the most important processes in global logistics - ensuring that millions of TEUs of containerized freight move as planned.

Join leaders from Century Supply Chain Solutions and Slync.io as they shed light on ways the ocean booking process is going completely digital and its impact on operational efficiency, agility, and customer value short and long-term.

Logistics Technology: The Future of Digital Procurement

Calendar icon
Shippers across modes have been saddled with an unenviable amount of volatility, on both the high and low side of the rate and capacity-availability spectrum. That volatility is throwing a number of long-held beliefs about freight procurement — most notably a reliance on annual contracts and devotion to a multi-round bidding process — into question. As technology advances in all areas of logistics take hold, it's appropriate for shippers to wonder if the time they take determine the appropriate carriers, allocate freight, and find the right rate equates to a commensurate amount of value. This webcast will focus on how bidding across freight modes is changing, how the proliferation of rate information is changing procurement models, and whether it makes sense to be more flexible as a buying organization.
