Griffiths, who is managing editor for Global Container Freight at S&P Global Commodity Insights, will discuss current bottlenecks in the shipping industry, what S&P expects to happen to prices, what might cast more uncertainty in the long run and much more.

Griffiths has worked on the Platts Containers desk since 2018, pricing major trade lanes around the world for both container freight rates and their associated bunker charges. George also writes weekly and monthly reports on the current state of play in the container market, and regularly speaks at conferences and webinars around the world on these topics.

The webinar is entirely free to attend for all PV Tech readers and will be held live at 15:00 BST on Thursday 19 May 2022. A short presentation will be followed by a fireside discussion and audience Q&A.

A recording will also be available after the event.
