Clarksons Research is forecasting a continuing rebound for shipping from the pandemic in 2022.

The research arm of UK shipbroker Clarksons believes the ongoing recovery will be uneven but port congestion will still be a feature next year.

Steve Gordon, managing director of Clarksons Research, said: "The encouraging recovery in shipping markets we profiled six months ago has since developed into a remarkably strong year, driven by rebounding volumes and widespread logistical disruption."
