About the Event: The ship's grounding in the Suez Canal and the subsequent halt of traffic illustrated that the ease of movement of goods is critical to the success of international trade. This year, shipping lane and port congestion issues highlighted an already difficult transportation capacity situation brought upon by the pandemic and the years of increasing international trade. We are presenting a discussion of the ripple effects of the EVER GIVEN grounding on international trade, lessons we have learned, and the steps we can take, as importers, exporters, and logistics operators to reduce the risk of the rising demand for shipping capacity.
