Container Manufacturing: Dealing with the Container crunch

The global trade community is experiencing severe container shortage. Even though the top container manufacturers in China have ramped up their box production capacity, but still the total containers available on the ground are falling short of the existing demand. Equipment leasing companies predict this scenario to continue into the year 2022. The Government of India has extended its “Atmanirbhar” drive to include container manufacturing in India and make our country self-sufficient in manufacturing containers.

Taking forward its series of thought provoking webinars Maritime Gateway is organising its next webinar on container manufacturing titled “Container Manufacturing: Dealing with the Container crunch.”
