At NYSHEX (New York Shipping Exchange), we’re all about getting the smartest minds in a room to solve container shipping industry challenges. That’s why, in addition to our Board of Directors, we have a Member Council, composed of BCO shippers and NVOCCs, as well as an Emeritus Board.
Have you ever had that feeling you’re experiencing the same thing over and over again? If you have worked in or around the container shipping industry, then you know well the predominant feeling of dealing with the same old themes year after year. Themes like rate complexity, a lack of reliability and transparency, volatile fuel costs, no-shows-rollings-blanked-sailings, and unenforceable ocean contracts, etc....
Focus is absolutely critical for any early stage company, and this is no different for us at NYSHEX.
What a year for the shipping industry! We faced trucking shortages, embargoes, trade tariff hikes, reduced capacity and much more. A wise man once said, “I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” Our members and industry experts share their thoughts about the winds of development that were most impactful in 2018 and what their projections are for 2019.
