Over the past two years, freight rates have experienced massive volatility and this trend looks set to continue across 2022 – and who can predict how high the trajectory will go for container shipping rates?

In a new and timely one-day course, expert shipping analyst Mark Williams, MD of Shipping Strategy Limited, will explain shipping market fundamentals by introducing the main concepts in modelling physical shipping markets, including how to measure and report supply and demand. Delegates will also gain an understanding of how to model freight rates using supply and demand and how to model freight rates using econometrics.


This course comprises four 90-minute sessions with interactive exercises and group discussions.

Students will need to bring a laptop/tablet with internet access.
