[LIVE WEBINAR] November 23 | Ocean Freight Outlook 2022

Ocean Freight Outlook 2022 Webinar


After 18 months of unpredictability and uncertainty in the supply chains, there is a big question on everyone’s mind – What can shippers and carriers expect from 2022 to develop supply chain resilience in the new normal?   

The global supply chains have yet to recover to the pre-Covid normalcy after almost two years of witnessing historically acrimonious carrier-shipper relations, a worldwide driver shortage, rollovers, port quarantines, skyrocketing box rates and LNG prices, port congestion, Brexit, vaccines mandates etc.  

Throughout 2021, Xeneta’s global index for the contract market has recorded a hike of 90.1% YoY, making it a highly profitable market for carriers but challenging for shippers. The September 2021 volumes into USWC also fell for the first time since June 2020. 

Recently, many rate developments of key trades have fallen from the peak levels in October. Also, we might be looking at the end of this year’s peak demand season for US consumers. It is still unclear how recent COP 26 will affect liner shipping in 2022, and with carriers changing their offerings, it will be interesting to witness how this impacts the market.

This year, the market also proved that data is fundamental for any business as it drives decisions at the operational and strategic levels. In 2022, most businesses will depend highly on data to bring stability and predictability back in their global supply chains. 

That is why we are bringing the most awaited webinar of the year, where we will look back at the black swan events so far and analyze current industry data to uncover the 2022 outlook.  

Join our State of the Ocean Freight Market Webinar LIVE on November 23, 2021, with Patrik Berglund, Xeneta’s CEO & Co-Founder and Peter Sand, Chief Analyst at Xeneta, to discuss how current rate trends will impact the 2022 market outlook.
