In this Big Interview, The Loadstar Podcast editor and producer Mike King gets the view of the freight and shipping world from the perspective of shippers, as he interviews James Hookham, secretary general of the Global Shippers’ Forum.

He asks why shippers still want reform of the liner industry, even as rates decline? Also discussed are the impacts Covid disruptions and soaring freight rates have had on SMEs, why container lines need more regulation, how carriers and shippers can build trust so they can cooperate more fully on critical challenges, including how to decarbonise supply chains, and why more action needs to be taken to stop insects getting into boxes.
