The second webinar in the IBJ Webinar series will take place on 28th October and will focus on dry bulk ports and terminals.

Dry bulk ship loading and unloading operations worldwide have been hugely impacted by the pandemic. Some ports and terminals have experienced a slump in throughput for individual dry bulk commodities, others have had their busiest year ever, whilst some have seen a downturn and are now experiencing a recovery.

Once again, IBJ has assembled an influential panel of industry leaders to discuss the major challenges they are currently facing, the lessons that have been learned and possible future trends for bulk ports and terminals.

A wide range of topics will be covered during the 90 minute webinar including opportunities for registered online viewers to raise their own questions to selected panellists.

  • Rodney Corrigan, President, Logistec Stevedoring Inc. Canada
  • Stuart Cullen, Executive Chairman, Solent Stevedores, United Kingdom
