Drilling Deep: Collapsing volumes of ocean freight

On this week’s Drilling Deep podcast, host John Kingston talks with colleague Henry Byers about the data that shows a coming collapse in ocean freight movements.

FreightWaves’ Henry Byers created a bit of a storm recently when he wrote an article with a provocative title: U.S. import demand is dropping off a cliff.

In this week’s edition of Drilling Deep, Byers sits down with host John Kington to talk about the methodology used to reach that conclusion and what it means for the larger issue of backed-up supply chains.

Also on the podcast, Kingston looks at what a just-released oil market report says about the diesel market and why it continues to outperform crude oil and gasoline in such a dramatic way.
