The Deep Dive: We Need To Talk About Peak Season

Sep 15 2022 | 00:21:08


Show Notes

In this Deep Dive Loadstar Podcast, Mike King and guests explain the traditional container shipping peak season and its role in the ebb and flow of global trade.

They also examine how the last two years of Covid-driven supply chain disruption have impacted box trade seasonality.

And they consider whether parts of that transformation will be permanent, or whether a return to normality is now underway in the shape of a 2022 peak season that has faltered in the face of economic headwinds.
