Maritime Trading
& Risk Analysis in a Volatile Market
[On Demand]

Trade sanctions on oil and shipping markets have far reaching effects that extend beyond the specific entities they target, such as hindering trade flows and geopolitical ramifications. As a result, in today’s globalised maritime ecosystem, companies across the oil supply chain are recognising the need to actively assess the risk of dynamic sanctions and regulatory environments.

During this session, Vortexa, Windward and C4ADS will shed a light on the challenges that need to be overcome to navigate today’s choppy sanctioned waters.
