Steve Ferreira looks at how Black Friday shopping trends are influencing ocean shippers.

Navigate B2B with Steve Ferreira

Black Friday shopping looks different this year thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, with more people choosing to shop online. 

For Steve Ferreira, founder and CEO of Ocean Audit, this means retailers are going to stretch the limits of their container shipping abilities trying to get consumer goods into the United States. 

Ferreira breaks down:

  • What Amazon Freight shows consumers are ordering based on what current containers are full of. 
  • If consumers are showing their sentiment on economic recovery based on the goods they are ordering.
  • How the Dallas Cowboys relate to container shipping trends. 
  • His relationship with Jon Monroe, founder of Jon Monroe Consulting, and what Monroe thinks about the container freight market.  

You can watch Navigate B2B Friday mornings at 9:30 EST and find recaps of all our shows here.
