SPEAKER INTERVIEW - Rohan Masakorala

SPEAKER INTERVIEW - Rohan Masakorala

Can you give an overview of your conference topic/session? 

I will be speaking in the following two sessions, which broadly covers the shipping industry’s current environment and its impact on shippers and the possibility of the industry recovering from the slump. Secondly, I will be discussing the future model for trade and logistics which has been put forward by China

CONTAINER INDUSTRY: MOVING FORWARD IN A CHANGING LANDSCAPE:  The Shippers’ Perspective: getting the industry back on track

UPDATE ON CHINA’s ONE BELT, ONE ROAD: Will the one belt one road initiative be an effective development and trade model for China and emerging economies?


Why is this an important topic to discuss?

Both topics have significant influence to global trade in the short term and long term, which will impact shippers and shipping lines and other service providers, the logistics and supply chains


What can attendees expect to learn and discover from your session?

Attendees will understand how shippers view the current slump in the shipping industry and what it means for shippers through unstable freight markets and the worry of consolidating shipping industry. My second topic will discuss the China initiative and possible impact on shipping and logistics


What do you think is the biggest issue being faced/discussed in your industry at the moment?

As a representative of cargo owners, the worry is the challenge and uncertainty for globalisation due to new US policy and the changing landscape in EU and the impact of it on trade and trading patterns


What is the biggest lesson you learned in 2016?

Given the political land scape changes in 2016, I realized nothing is permanent, including in the free world,


What do you think the biggest challenge for the industry will be in 2017?

Managing markets, prices and technology


What innovative measures should the industry adopt in the next few years to ensure market sustainability and growth?

It’s difficult to say what, but innovation and strategically adapting to market conditions and need speed as a smart tool to stay in business


Why do you think events like Intermodal Asia are important for the industry?

Industry discussions and an understanding of different views/ opinion gives participants knowledge and education to understand the directions and markets for better planning and always these platforms create the industry links and networks to benefit business.
