Coronavirus webinar: Register now for critical shipping insight
Join Lloyd’s List experts as they share data and insights on the impact of the coronavirus and discuss the issues arising from it
The first Lloyd’s List interactive webinar covering the coronavirus crisis will include topics such as supply chain, the oil price war and crewing, among other areas
REGISTRATION is now open for the Lloyd’s List webinar titled ‘Coronavirus: the issues for shipping and their impact’ taking place on March 26.
The economic tsunami of the coronavirus pandemic has delivered an unprecedented external shock to the macro outlook, affecting every aspect of international shipping in its wake. While the situation remains fluid there is now a need to move beyond the daily headlines and examine the wider context and shipping-specific risks.
Kicking off our expanded range of digital content and events looking in depth at the coronavirus crisis in the shipping sector, our panel for this online event includes Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade, Christopher Palsson, head of consulting at Lloyd’s List Intelligence, and markets editor Michelle Wiese Bockmann.
They will also be joined by other members of the Lloyd’s List editorial team to answer your questions in an interactive Q&A session.
The topics to be covered include:
The supply chain issue: While an upturn in Chinese port calls has offered a glimmer of positive news the global situation is starting to reveal supply chain pressure points. Can Europe and the United States unlock their supply chains to get incoming shipments moving?
The oil price war issue: a combination of the pandemic and an oil price war are dramatically restructuring the supply and demand fundamentals for the tanker sector — what does this mean for rates and earnings in 2020?
The people issue: how can crew still travel around safely to keep the industry moving?
The credit issue: as companies adapt to the rapidly changing economic circumstances, what are the risk areas for companies continuing to operate?
There are two time slots available for the webinar during the day — 0800 GMT and 1500 GMT — and the form for registering your attendance is available via this link.
