My Niche or Yours: The Evolving Industrial Project Supply Chain

Should carriers handle cargo strictly from hook to hook, or should their role extend further? Should forwarders own vessels or warehouses? Who should attend owners’ RFQs? Gray areas and overlap are not new in supply chain roles; but under modern market pressures, is the whole project industry ‘going gray’? What are the downsides, and how are these trends changing the project industry?
