The author discusses the impact of the 2012 Journal of Commerce Trans-Pacific (JOC TPM) Asia Conference on the global container shipping industry. According to the author, although the JOC TPM conference clarified the container shipping environment in certain ways, in other ways it was difficult to avoid the conclusion that it is becoming more difficult to measure the relative impact of the major forces that have an influence on pricing in the east-west trade lanes.
