Americas’ only dedicated cement and clinker shipping event, INTERCEM Shipping Americas, will convene for the third time, this June in Boston (MA)


With forecasts suggesting that the US will surpass seaborne imports of 30 million tons in the next 5 – 7 years, 2017 saw a lot of activity across the US cement shipping sector, as terminal development accelerated in anticipation of further cement and clinker imports, to help meet future domestic demand. But despite this optimism, 2017 actually saw a slight slowdown in the growth of US cement imports, against many forecasts and expectations. 


INTERCEM Shipping Americas will bring delegates the latest market predictions over the course of one and a half days, as our specially-invited speaker panel address the latest trends, consider cement demand forecasts and the outlook for dry bulk shipping to analyse what further developments can be expected over the next couple of years.


Join INTERCEM and more than 100 senior industry representatives from cement producers, traders, shipowners, charterers and equipment and service providers, on the banks of the Charles River, as we convene for our third annual INTERCEM Shipping Americas with downtown Boston as our spectacular backdrop.

The programme for INTERCEM Shipping Americas 2018 will appear shortly.
