Review of Maritime Transport 2020 Information Session
07 December 2020
Online session

Date: Monday 7 December 2020

Time: 10:00 – 11:00 EST New York Time, 16:00 – 17:00 CET Geneva Time

Platform: Microsoft Teams

The Review of Maritime Transport 2020 provides an update on the latest trends in maritime trade, supply, markets, key performance indicators, and legal and regulatory developments. It also includes a special chapter with testimonials from maritime stakeholders and their experiences in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Review also calls for the designation of seafarers and other marine personnel, regardless of nationality, as key workers, and exempt them from travel restrictions.

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the global interdependency of nations and set in motion new trends that will reshape the maritime transport landscape. The sector is at a pivotal moment facing not only immediate concerns resulting from the pandemic but also longer-term considerations, ranging from shifts in supply-chain design and globalization patterns to changes in consumption and spending habits, a growing focus on risk assessment and resilience-building, as well as a heightened global sustainability and low-carbon agenda.
