The accumulation of disruption and supply chain shocks are transforming global trade as governments and businesses look to exchange efficiency for security
Box liftings accelerated at ports globally in 2021, yet the rebound from the Covid-induced slump came at a price. Ports and terminals felt the strain of sustained and unprecedented demand for containerised goods, while the logistical logjam that ensued put a dampener on an otherwise fruitful 12-month period

Half-Year Outlook 2022
The war in Ukraine, China lockdowns, supply-chain disruptions, and the risk of so-called ‘stagflation’ mean recession for many countries will be hard to avoid. The consequences are not yet playing out in the shipping sectors reviewed in this outlook report, but even in containers where rates remain high and cash is still flowing, executives are already planning for the post-pandemic party hangover.

As part of our Future of Shipping programme industry leaders and sector experts map the path to a sustainable and profitable future.
‘The shipping industry itself has set itself a pretty mealy-mouthed target of 5% by 2030. I think that 15% is a respectable target. By 2030 we shouldn’t have any engines which are not dual-fuel capable so that by 2040, we’ve got a shipping industry which can go carbon neutral.’
‘We are at an inflection point. First mover activities are going to inform and inspire the rest of the industry. They need to be enabled and supported, meaning that individual governments need to engage in this process and make sure that we have regulation in place that supports it in the interim until we get global regulation in place.’
‘We need to get closer to our customers and co-operate on making this industry more efficient. Because there’s so much waste. The moment you put a value on carbon and decreasing the carbon footprint, I think that people have a tendency to be more friendly, open to discuss and see how they can co-operate together.’
‘There are some tough decisions to be made, but I think the reality is the old business models that we had are not going to survive this and I think that a lot of companies will have to figure out how they actually deal with this. So, I really want to see that happening between us and our clients and I believe that that will mean a dramatic change of the contractual relationship that exists between the two of us.’
