Turn crisis into opportunity with the Project Cargo Summit 2020 Online

The world economy has taken a massive hit, but as entrepreneurs and economists will often tell you, crises also present opportunities. During the online edition of the Project Cargo Summit 2020 on the 23rd and 24th of September, we will explore these opportunities in-depth. You can join us in this search, completely free of charge.

The Project Cargo Summit is an international event for the project cargo, breakbulk and heavy-lift industry. In two online sessions, we will talk about how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the market, what you likely can expect going forward and how you can use the situation to your advantage.

Learn from leading shipping analyst Peter Sand of BIMCO which shipping markets will likely see the fastest and biggest uptick, and which ones will probably underperform.

With travel restrictions still in place for many countries, companies have had to be creative in serving their customers in the best possible way. As it turns out, heavy transports can be managed from 9,000 miles away and engineers do not always have to fly to the other side of the world to solve problems. What remote working solutions are here to stay? And what efficiency gains do they bring? Logistics Plus and Liebherr will tell you first-hand and the solution may be simpler than you think.

Covid-19

The oil and gas sector is one of the industries most hard-hit by the pandemic. Analysts predict that this crisis will have a bigger impact than the crude price crash of 2014. What does this mean for logistics providers? Specialised freight forwarders like Lubbers Logistics and Aprojects will tell you how they are dealing with the downturn, and what opportunities are still left.

Renewables

While some industries are in a slump, others are thriving. The wind industry is rapidly evolving and the offshore industry is struggling to keep up. What opportunities does this bring for the heavy-lift industry? And how will supply chains evolve now turbines are getting bigger? We will discuss these challenges in-depth with Wind Europe and specialized contractors and forwarders.

Not nearly as evolved but definitely promising is the hydrogen industry. Will rising demand for this alternative fuel create a new offshore market? Rystad Energy will tell what you can expect of this new project cargo sector.
