On 12 September, Reed Smith will be hosting a panel of shipping industry professionals for London International Shipping Week to discuss ‘Managing your supply chain risk’.

Taking place in our London office, this interactive discussion aims to bring together professionals in the shipping industry and beyond to hear different perspectives across the global supply chain. As one of the four panellists taking part in the day’s event, I am looking forward to what is sure to be a lively debate. Attendees will benefit from hearing about the current trends, issues and obstacles from other representatives from across the industry. There will also be an increased focus on decarbonisation in the shipping industry and the impact of sanctions on the global supply of fuel.

As the panel discussion is one of a number of events during London International Shipping Week, we look forward to bringing leaders in the maritime industry together from across the globe for lunch, networking and to forge new relationships after the panel takes place.
