US ports will enter the second half of 2022 struggling with vessel backlogs, congested marine terminals, and inland transportation bottlenecks. What is causing these logistical problems, will they be resolved by the summer-fall peak-shipping season, and what must the ports and their stakeholders do in terms of process improvements and infrastructure development to return to fluidity? Ports are achieving some success through container dray-offs — establishing near-dock surge or “pop-up” yards for the temporary storage of containers so they do not congest the marine terminals. As near-dock sites become more difficult to find, ports are looking further inland for available land for pop-up yards and inland ports. Encouraging carriers and railroads to move more containers via on-dock rail is diverting thousands of trucks moves to intermodal rail. Now it’s up to ocean carriers to book more inland point intermodal (IPI) shipments, and it’s on the railroads to devote more capacity for IPI services. Carriers are helping to free up space by sending “sweeper” ships to vacate thousands of empty containers from the terminals. Dwell times for rail and local-delivery containers, however, are still above acceptable levels. In the longer term, ports must expand terminal capacity, densify their operations, where possible, by automating cargo-handling equipment, and by increasing cargo velocity so their marine terminals are truly transit facilities rather than storage sheds.

This webcast will assess the challenge supply chain stakeholders have faced in the first half of 2022, and what lies ahead.

The COVID-19 pandemic kick-started a trend that was already in motion: the growth of e-commerce and the rise in direct-to-consumer brands. However, while more consumers were eager to purchase items online, supply chains weren’t prepared to handle the volumes, changes in distribution patterns, and the shift from bulk to the parcel. As supply chains reset to meet and anticipate demand beyond the pandemic, e-commerce and direct-to-consumer brands are becoming the focal point of many shippers’ strategies. This webcast will explore why e-commerce and direct-to-consumer are changing supply chains from order, delivery, and reverse, what steps shippers, carriers, and other logistics providers are taking to make networks more agile to handle the volumes, and the role technology can play.

The stakes for container shipping in Washington, D.C., are only getting higher. Congress in August took its first step to rewriting the US shipping law for the first time since 2008. And now the Biden administration and some members of Congress are looking to repeal ocean carriers’ antitrust immunity, which could undermine their ability to operate within alliances. That could threaten the three major shipping alliances, or highly structured vessel-sharing agreements, that have allowed carriers to cooperate operationally by pooling their cargo as long as they still compete with each other. Critics, including President Joe Biden, say the alliances’ powers are too great and, in effect, reduce competition. Carriers counter that the unwinding of alliances would leave shippers with fewer port and sailing options, exacerbating the longest and sharpest shipping disruption since the dawn of containerization in the 1950s. This webcast will cut through legislative speak to define the issues and outline the commercial risk and opportunities for shippers and their transportation providers alike.

The crisis in Ukraine is having an impact on US highways, as fuel prices rise amid increasing uncertainty. The more than $1-per-gallon leap in weekly average diesel prices was a direct hit on US trucking companies and their customers, many of whom had signed annual contracts with high contract rate increases earlier in the quarter. Now shippers, carriers, and brokers are navigating a trucking landscape that again is being transformed by uncertainty, after two years of COVID-pandemic disruption. This webcast will explore how shippers and their transportation partners are dealing with this latest round of disruption, what the impact will be on shipping choices, and how they now view 2022 — all as the typical spring peak season for US trucking gets underway in April.

The last two years have shown that procurement of freight capacity isn't only a time-consuming challenge, but also an increasingly costly one to buyers, both shippers, and intermediaries. The question now is, what part of the process has moved beyond the human scale, and what process still needs to be managed and executed by logistics professionals? The answer clearly isn't the same for all organizations, but this one-hour session will cover the challenges and opportunities of using technology to address that highly complicated procurement puzzle. Technologies to be discussed include rate benchmarking, predictive rate tools, and automated procurement software designed to base decisions on historical and forward-looking data.

Cargo shippers, ocean carriers, and other logistics service providers can expect ever-increasing pressure to assess, disclose, and manage the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to their activities. Regulatory bodies such as the SEC are developing disclosure requirements for GHGs and climate change risk, while the International Maritime Organization is requiring carriers to meet increasingly stringent emissions-reduction requirements. Stakeholders across the board expect accurate and verifiable emissions information from their service providers, but disparate data collection methods and a lack of visibility mean that participants struggle with reporting even when they are eager to be compliant. Reporting and requirement uncertainties also increase investment risk. 

In this webcast, we will hear from experts on managing carbon footprints in the project logistics supply chain and on driving decarbonization across the maritime industry by creating data transparency.

This year’s process to secure service contracts in the eastbound trans-Pacific is unfolding like no other year before it. Buffeted by longer lead times, port schedule reliability, and ships that have been idled or slowed in transit, shippers have experienced exponential increases in freight rates over the past year, and still struggled to get their goods to destination weeks after originally scheduled. To bring some stability back to the market, ocean carriers urged their steady customers to enter annual contract negotiations much earlier than usual this year, and retailers and other importers jumped at the opportunity. For carriers, the early start to 2022–23 service contract talks provides an opportunity to lock in a base of business from reliable customers with a history of delivering committed cargo volumes. For shippers who started negotiations in November, rather than in February or March, the lure is to lock in capacity at contract rates that will assuredly be lower than the spot rates in effect during the 2021 peak shipping season. Demand for vessel space in the largest US trade lane will exceed supply this year, just as it did in 2021. On the other hand, spot rates have fallen from the record-smashing levels in October, which means early contract negotiations are beginning at a time when carriers’ leverage won’t continue to rise further. For both carriers and their customers, the ultimate goal during contract negotiations this coming year is to achieve predictability and reliability. 
 
This webcast will analyze this crucial trade lane and explore whether there is any calm on the horizon or whether the storm will only continue.

The traditional breakbulk market, heavily weighted toward energy projects, is showing signs of returning to life — even as cargo shippers and logistics service providers grapple with a congested, expensive shipping market driven by container cargo "spillover." However, the energy investment landscape, and thus the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) sector that builds these projects — and generates millions of freight tons of project cargo — has changed dramatically over the past few years. While several large fossil fuel-based projects have recently been awarded or started moving after the pandemic-driven slowdown, the billion-plus mega-projects of yesteryear are fewer and farther between. How is the EPC sector adapting to the new reality: scarcer, smaller projects; the energy transition; decarbonization; and the drive for renewable energy? What can the project logistics sector expect over the next few years?
 
This webcast will analyze the outlook for the EPC sector, a key cargo driver for the project cargo market.

Standardization of shipping documentation and data has long been an elusive pursuit in the world of global logistics. The fragmented nature of the industry, including the sheer number of parties involved in any shipment, is one reason so little is standardized but also a motivation to push toward standardization. The basic premise is simple: The more that is standardized, the less time and resources will be spent on turning oranges into apples, and the more time that can be spent on innovating and improving. 
 
This webcast, the third in a three-part series leading up to the TPMTech Conference on Feb. 24-25 in Long Beach, California, will explore the key areas of the global logistics industry where standardization is happening, and where the potential exists to create efficiencies that benefit all parties. In so doing, we'll look at practical examples, and the associations, solutions, and platforms enabling that incremental change.

The trans-Pacific supply chain in 2021 was overwhelmed by record US imports from Asia, COVID-19 outbreaks that shut down key China load ports for weeks at a time, the worst vessel on-time performance ever, vessel bunching and congestion at major US gateways and intermodal rail networks, and inland ramps that are still gridlocked. Because US imports now are driven in large part by e-commerce replenishment, and consumers show no signs of cutting back on spending, will these same conditions persist in 2022? What can North American ports and terminal operators do to improve cargo velocity, such as creating surge yards for the temporary storage of containers to relieve pressures at marine terminals, and forming peel piles to reduce trucker turn times? Can shippers look for relief next year at inland rail hubs such as Chicago and Memphis, or will the rail ramps stay congested or possibly get worse? 
 
This webcast will feature the latest trends, outlook, data, and analytics, along with insights from key industry experts and stakeholders as cargo interests wrestle with the worst congestion in recent memory.  
 
Session Chair/Presenter: 
Bill Mongelluzzo, Senior Editor, Trans-Pacific, JOC, Maritime & Trade, IHS Markit
 
AGENDA:
 
1:00 - 1:05 PM Welcome Remarks
 
1:05 - 1:35 PM The 2022 Container Shipping Outlook
Will container lines step up to provide sufficient capacity if the record 15 consecutive months of record and near-record import volumes continue well into the new year — or beyond? What are the key forces driving the huge North American import volumes, and will those forces continue to be at work in 2022? Has the eastbound trans-Pacific transitioned from a seasonal trade lane in which peaks and valleys are based upon back-to-school, holiday and spring shopping, and post-holiday and Lunar New Year lows, to a continuous flow of merchandise-based on online shopping? What are the implications of constant replenishment for port congestion and port-related supply chains in Asia and North America? Does “build the church for Easter Sunday” now mean every week is Easter Sunday in the eastbound trans-Pacific?
 
Keynote Speaker: 
Alan Murphy, CEO, and President, Sea-Intelligence Consulting
 
1:35 - 2:05 PM Asia Load Ports in 2022: Taking Stock
Which ports — and manufacturing centers — in China, Southeast Asia, and the Indian subcontinent are most likely to continue expanding, and which regions will most likely experience gridlock? Do manufacturers in Asia anticipate exports to North America will cool down from the torrid pace in 2021? What did ports and terminal operators in Asia learn this past year about handling record and near-record volumes month after month? Have they implemented new, improved, and safer operating procedures? What about manufacturers in those countries? What are they doing to maintain resiliency in the COVID era? Have other countries learned from China that it takes a village comprised of vendors, manufacturers, assemblers, and logistics providers to efficiently meet growing consumer demand in North America?
 
Speakers:
Jon Monroe, President, Jon Monroe Consulting
Daniel Krassenstein, Global Supply Chain Director, Procon Pacific
 
2:05 - 2:35 PM West and East Coast Ports: More Challenges Ahead?
North American ports have endured an unprecedented 15 consecutive months of record or near-record months of imports from Asia. Will these volumes continue into 2022, or possibly beyond? What improved processes have ports deployed to handle vessel bunching, congested marine terminals, chassis shortages, drayage capacity challenges, and warehouses filled to capacity? Will US ports follow the model rolled out by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in October of charging fees on containers with excessive dwell times to drive cargo velocity?

West Coast Ports: Sal Ferrigno, Vice President, SSA Marine
New York-New Jersey: Bethann Rooney, Deputy Port Director, Port Authority of New York-New Jersey

2:35 - 3:05 PM Container Handoffs From Marine Terminals to Warehouses and Intermodal Rail Ramps
Where have all the chassis gone? The overland supply chain this past year has contended with non-stop shortages of chassis, truck capacity, rail power and cars, and record bottlenecks at rail ramps in Chicago and other inland hubs. What plans do asset providers and railroads have to increase their chassis deployments for 2022 cargo volumes that may well exceed those in 2021? Can US chassis manufacturers step up production to meet growing demand next year? When will inland rail hubs return to normal operations?

2021 may be winding down, but the containerized shipping market is far from it. US port congestion remains at crisis levels even as import growth from Asia is slowing on a year-over-year basis, and the summer-fall surge in US COVID-19 cases is slowing the recovery in consumer spending, according to data from JOC parent company IHS Markit. Even if supply chain bottlenecks ease, and assume progress in vaccinations and a reduction in COVID infections, growth in consumer spending and imports will likely resume in 2022, as will inventory building and earlier-than-usual shipping cycles for importers. No one, after all, wants to relive the pain of this year’s supply chain crisis. On the bright side for shippers, when congestion ultimately eases and circulation of ships, containers, and chassis improves, capacity will return to the system and will create downward pressure on rates. Only time will tell how and when that occurs. 
 
This webcast will shine a light on the current state of the market, and when the tide might turn.

Large, bulky items such as exercise equipment, furniture, and even 50-pound bags of pet food often present challenges for parcel and less-than-truckload carriers. Such items are time-consuming to manage in sorting facilities that are designed for smaller items, they’re often not easily palletized for LTL shipments. In both situations, fewer items are loaded in delivery trucks and vans. To mitigate costs and time incurred in handling large and bulky items, carriers may add surcharges to handle and deliver these types of goods. But what happens if shippers can’t find capacity from either a parcel carrier or LTL provider? 
 
This webcast will explore what steps shippers can take to determine the best carrier to use to deliver such goods while providing the following takeaways:
     • Cost and service-level considerations between types of carriers
     • Understanding who the new entrants are in the big and bulky delivery space
     • How shippers can measure success

Accurate calculation of detention and demurrage fees for importers and exporters has been a systemic issue for logistics professionals to manage. The saying "there is no free time" in logistics has never been more apt than in 2021, where extreme port congestion has ratcheted up the degree to which D&D problems plague the industry. There are, of course, many sides to the issue, but one underexplored facet is the degree to which technology can help improve the situation. From greater cargo visibility to milestone standardization across terminals to electronic payment mechanisms, the list of potential solutions is diverse. But which path or paths are the best for shippers and their representatives to take? And who is best suited to provide those solutions: terminals, ports, container lines, third-party logistics companies, or independent software providers? 
 
This webcast will explore how or if technology can tangibly impact the long-running problem of D&D.

The port congestion and supply chain challenges confronting refrigerated shippers is a microcosm of the industry as a whole: strong volumes to and from Asia, labor shortages at the busiest terminals on the US West and East coasts, tight trucking and storage capacity, chassis shortages, and problems repositioning containers. Combined, these and other issues are wreaking havoc on the global movement of perishables products — and the situation isn’t expected to ease until next spring, at least. In some cases, delays are causing fresh produce to rot on ships because those ships are unable to discharge containers at congested ports. Meanwhile, refrigerated shipping rates have risen sharply and shippers face multiple other costs, including detention and demurrage and/or terminal-handling charges if they seek to reposition their containers. In this environment, what are shippers to do? Is re-routing Asia-bound shipments to less-congested East and Gulf coast ports an option? What role can technology play? 
 
This webcast will analyze the cold chain state of play as the year winds down and 2022 approaches.
