TOC Americas Virtual Expo Agenda Goes LIVE!

Conference Agenda Announced – Identifying & Adapting to the New Normal for Port Operations in the region.

Last week saw the launch of the eagerly-awaited agenda for TOC Americas Virtual Expo, with 9 sessions announced taking place across 3 jam-packed days

Launched to provide cargo owners, 3PLs, ocean carriers, land transport providers, port authorities and terminal operators with a much needed platform of stability at this time of uncertainty and unprecedented change, this digital alternative to the market-leading TOC Americas event will provide an update on the latest intelligence on key trends in international trade, container shipping strategy, port development, transport logistics and of course, terminal operations.

Content themes include:

  • Post-Covid: Emerging from Lockdown, Economic Impact & Road to Recovery: Examines how the shipping sector continued to operate and play its role in the movement of materials including medical supplies whilst other industries were forced to shut down, plus the subsequent new challenges ports and terminals now have to operate under as a result of the pandemic
  • Liner Strategy & Stabilization: At the beginning of this crisis, analysts speculated how severely impacted lines would be and estimated losses of up to $23 billion, but now, and if rates can be maintained, liners could make a profit as high as $9 billion – a number even more astounding when you consider that in 2019 liners collectively profited to the tune of $5 billion before COVID-19
  • Accelerating Digitalization: There has been huge debate around shifting towards more digitally-focused operating models and there has been wide criticism that progress has been slow, but with the industry seeing up to 50% of its workforce operating remotely during lockdown and cargo still flowing efficiently through ports, has the industry been too harsh on its progress to date?  Is now the time to step-up to the next phase of digitalization?
