NITL Webinar: Solutions for the Ocean Shipping Network 

June 3, 2021
1– 2pm EDT 

Register Now 

The ongoing ocean shipping turmoil has wreaked havoc on US exporters and importers, costing them billions of dollars in higher shipping costs, demurrage and detention charges, and lost business, with still no clear end in sight.   

The inability of US companies to timely access marine containers and chassis and secure sufficient vessel bookings to meet their business requirements has upended the ocean cargo shipping and delivery network.  These unprecedented challenges have exposed gaps in the law governing ocean carrier services that warrant immediate action.  

Join NITL for a webinar to discuss these challenges and review possible solutions through modifications to The Shipping Act of 1984, as proposed by NITL.  


Featured Speakers: 

  • Lori Fellmer, Chair, NITL Ocean Committee 
  • Karyn Booth, NITL General Counsel; Partner, Thompson Hine Law Firm 
  • Randy Mullett, Senior Policy Advisor; NITL; Mullet Strategies 
  • Jennifer Hedrick, Executive Director, NITL

The COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution will be the World’s Greatest Logistical Feat- Learn about the Bottlenecks, Obstacles and Challenges from the Front Lines.

Regardless of your company’s involvement, your supply chain may be impacted. Don’t miss this important session.

The pandemic transformed global supply chains, tested their limits and has proven most to be highly resilient. Operation Warp Speed—the name given to the shipping of COVID-19 vaccine, in a cold/cool environment in the US, (and everywhere on earth), is an undertaking like no other before.  Whether involved or not, this project will likely have several unintended consequences for shippers and service providers in our interconnected world. Join this panel as they explore challenges from the perspectives of a global package delivery provider, a healthcare freight forwarder, a temperature-controlled packaging supplier, and a healthcare and food trucking service provider. They’ll discuss the vaccine launch, and how it might lead to potential complexity in related and unrelated areas of the supply chain.

Demand for Trucking Reaches Historic High: How to Combat Covid-19 Induced Capacity Crisis Soaring

September 2nd – 11am EDT

Speaker: Jeff Tucker, Tucker Company Worldwide

Since June 2020, truck capacity has steadily tightened, reaching all-time highs in early August. Freight prices have increased in the spot markets, LTL and intermodal. Contract pricing too, as tender rejections are up. It all adds up to the next great capacity crisis–the third in about 5 years. Yet few shippers plan strategies to anticipate and scale these crises.

Demand is likely to increase–U.S. factory orders rose 6.2% in June, with predicted continued growth; China’s factory output in July was the largest growth it’s had since 2011. It means products will be more expensive and more challenging to ship than ever before. We’ll look at the market data today and discuss some critical mega-trends you need to know for future success.
