Drewry to scrutinise multipurpose prospects  

Global shipping consultancy Drewry is hosting a free webinar later this month, looking at the recent trends and outlook for the multipurpose shipping market, covering both the breakbulk and project cargo sectors.

Drawing on key findings from the most recent edition of Drewry’s Multipurpose Shipping Forecaster report, the webinar will take place at 09.00 GMT and again at 16.00 GMT on January 15, 2019.
