Global shipping has been increasingly disrupted over the past 12-18 months and it’s a significant issue for Australian wine exporters. The long-term impact of COVID-19 is still being realised and the logistics industry is looking at supply chains, routes to market and market viability as well as the viability of markets they sell to.

Tailored for the wine sector, Emmanuel Olivier, Hillebrand Group Ocean Freight Director, and Joe Marsili, Hillebrand Oceania Procurement Manager, delivered an informative session which covered:

  • Where we are
  • How did we get here?
  • What's next?
  •  An update on the Oceania landscape.

Wine Australia’s General Manager Corporate Affairs & Regulatory, Rachel Triggs, provided an update on the changes to the requirements for VI-1 Certification following Brexit.
