The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce is organizing a webinar focusing on "Navigating turbulent times in the freight industry", which will take place on 8 February 2023 at 10h00 am CET.
The disruptive events that caused record-high ocean shipping rates are coming to an end, and rates are swinging back. Following the disruption, what is happening in the shipping market, and what can we expect in the coming year? How low will container rates go? As a shipper, what can you do to benefit from the decreasing prices? And is the 'pricing' crisis really over?
Our first speaker, Mr Didier Duponselle, Business Unit Director Warehousing and On-site Logistics, Ahlers, will address these questions during his presentation.
Our second speaker Mr Arno Coster, Commercial Director, Trade Facilitation, Ahlers, will discuss new customer patterns, new ways for companies to meet customers' needs, and new ways to execute the 'vision for the growth of revenue streams' in complex markets. Added to that, he will explain how business processing can be outsourced using the Ahlers Master Trade model to help companies operate successfully in complex markets.
Our third speaker, Mr Jan Van der Borght, Port Representative, Port of Antwerp-Bruges, will speak about how a world port like Antwerp-Bruges can adapt to respond to the changing maritime supply chain.
