From 20-22 May, the International Fertilizer (IFA) hosted their annual conference in Singapore. This year’s event brought together industry leaders, experts, and professionals to discuss the latest trends and challenges in the fertilizer industry.

Our CEO, Hans-Christian Olesen, was invited by IFA to participate in a moderated panel discussion at the conference, where he shared valuable insights on the safe and efficient shipping of fertilizers in an increasingly uncertain market. The topic for the debate was: “Navigating the choppy seas: Getting the product to the right place, at the right time”, and the discussions centred around market disruptions, sustainability in shipping, and innovative strategies for improving efficiency. 

Overall, the event was a great success, and the panel discussion offered diverse perspectives and contributed to a deeper understanding of how to navigate the dynamic shipping market. View more highlights from the event here.
