The next IBJ Webinar will take place on 30th November and will focus on ship owners / operators / managers.




With the worldwide pandemic now into its fourth quarter, dry bulk shipping operations worldwide have been hugely impacted. IBJ has assembled an influential panel of industry leaders to discuss the major challenges they are currently facing, the lessons that have been learned this year and possible future trends for the global industry.

Collectively and individually the panellists will share their experiences around the impact of COVID-19 on the bulk shipping industry’s financial situation, the crew change crisis, seafarer mental health and on board safety, digitalization and a wide range of topics. Bringing together key stakeholders with different industry perspectives will be hugely beneficial at this time, making the webinar topical, relevant, and important.
