Project Cargo Summit preview with Ahlers and G2 Ocean
It is less than a week to go until experts from across the chain join us in ProMedia Studios in Rotterdam for the next edition of the Project Cargo Summit. In the lead-up to the event we have already asked some of our speakers for their opinion on the market.
We have touched on the subject of the logistics puzzle with Jeroen De Ryck director of projects and machinery division at Ahlers, as well as the project cargo market developments and predictions with Kent-Ove Jacobsen, business development manager project cargo at G2 Ocean. You can join both speakers free and follow their discussions on solving the logistics puzzle and creating a predictable supply chain with a whole panel of top-tier guest from companies like DB Cargo, Samskip and Maersk.
To whet your appetite, here are a couple of interviews readied and published in preparation for the Project Cargo Summit.
Belgian logistics solutions provider Ahlers is certainly feeling the effects of high charter rates, and the lack of availability of equipment and space on vessels. Asked by Project Cargo Journal how this affects the operation at Ahlers, the company’s director of projects and machinery division, Jeroen De Ryck simply said, “A lot! We are getting rates now that are ten times higher than in the normal market. Even more of a problem is the fact that we can’t even get the equipment, or the guarantee that we can sail at this price level which is already incredibly high.”
Bergen-headquartered G2 Ocean, a major player in the open hatch and dry bulk segments, believes that Southeast Asia and Africa will gain in importance for the project cargo industry. This is due to the fact that more and more production of equipment is moving from China to Southeast Asia while there is increasing investments into Africa.
