One year on from the COVID19 global pandemic outbreak, ports around the world have demonstrated their resilience in keeping supply chains operational. This has been the case despite initial labour shortages, disruptive governmenal interventions to limit the spread of the disease and highly unpredictable supply and demand conditions due to panic consumption and multiple lockdowns impacting economic activity. With disruption still the norm, particularly in the container sector with imbalances created and rates at an all time high, ports are reassessing how to cope with crises on a permanent basis. In this insightful session, find out exactly what sort of measures ports should be taking in order to prepare themselves for the next crisis, be it financial, health-related, economic, climate-change related or otherwise.
