We constantly seek new sources of marketplace data to enhance Drewry’s research and advisory services enabling our clients to make informed and timely commercial decisions with conviction.”

“We at Container xChange are focused on improving the logistics of global trade. In today’s world with container prices at extreme rates and container availability remains unpredictable, data and technology are two areas that can bring immense resilience and agility to stakeholders in global supply chain,” added Roeloffs.
