This Week in Maritime –
A Roundtable Discussion with Maritime Experts
Our thanks to everyone for another successful, engaging session as we discussed maintaining the free flow of trade during the COVID-19 crisis.

For those who were unable to attend, we have kicked off weekly (Wednesdays) sessions to come together and host a roundtable where industry leaders share insight into the challenges they are dealing with related to or flowing from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The world is changing so quickly and we wanted to do our part by establishing a platform for knowledge sharing and support. We are all dealing with various challenges right now. While they are often not the same for everyone, exchanging information helps because it offers perspective and input for new approaches and solutions. Come and join us!
