Intercem Americas, Florida

The USA is the largest importer of cement in the world and 2022 was a bumper year for imports. Around 21 million tons have been transported across the ocean from Asia, Europe, Latin America and North Africa to help meet growing US demand driven by post-covid infrastructure plans. The number of different materials moving internationally for the cement industry is also growing. More and more imports of cementitious materials such as slags, ashes and pozzolana must be handled alongside other raw materials such as limestone, gypsum and clinker, as well as solid fuel and the finished cement product – often requiring additional shipments, additional storage and new systems. As price inflation skyrockets across the supply chain, from energy to raw materials and from labour to equipment, cost-efficient logistics, shipping and handling are more important than ever. From timely loading and unloading to transhipment, storage and operations at the port processes must be streamlined, environmentally conscious and value for money at a time when every dollar counts. INTERCEM Shipping Americas will ensure you are up to date with the latest developments from cement industry and shipping experts who will provide you with the latest insight and analysis on industry trends, market forecasts, freight rates, new environmental regulations and more. Essential information as you plan your business’s development through the coming years.
