The 2020 Breakbulk & Project Cargo Conference may have been canceled because of the COVID-19 outbreak, but The Journal of Commerce will present some major sessions of the program in a half-day webcast available for anyone. Join us as we present the outlook for the heavy-lift and breakbulk markets in this rapidly changing and even unprecedented environment. How will EPCs, other shippers, and transportation providers recalibrate in the near, mid-, and long term? What do plunging oil prices mean for the future of capital energy projects? What impact will COVID-19 related disruption have on tech solutions that can provide better in-transit visibility and supply-side analytics? What, exactly, is the new normal? This half-day webcast will take a deep dive into these and other pressing issues. Can’t make the full event? Join for any or all segments.
