Rising sea freights: the onset of a new trend?

Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 2:00 PM GMT

The combination of booming demand and a global supply chain that has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in escalating freight prices worldwide.

In this session, CW Research experts will provide a comprehensive overview of the global shipping market amidst a scenario of strengthening recoveries across major economies including the US and China, as Covid-19 vaccination increases and pent-up demand and dislodged supply chains drive prices for commodities – and freight rates – up.


The webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to hear CW Research team's insights on the global dry bulk shipping market, including:

  • Main sea freight indices outlook
  • Key drivers affecting global shipping costs
  • Regional demand drivers and constraints
  • Major commodities trade patterns
  • Dry bulk market developments
  • Ongoing impact of Covid-19
