Learn how to Navigate and Network Using Swapcard

Just like last year, IAM has chosen to use Swapcard as its technology provider for the 2021 Annual Meeting and Expo. It is a tool that will knit together the in-person and virtual meeting experiences. This year there are some updates to the system, but much of it is the same - it will help you attend sessions, connect with your colleagues, and get the most out of the experience.

The world's third busiest container port is back but the shipping crisis isn't over yet

One coronavirus case was all it took to shut down a critical part of the world's third busiest container port. Now, the Meishan terminal at the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port in eastern China is back up and running, according to the state-owned company that manages the port. Operations resumed at midnight, ending a two-week long suspension. The terminal in Ningbo, which is south of Shanghai, had been shut since August 11 after a dock worker tested positive for Covid-19. That led officials to swiftly suspend container pickup service, citing a "system disruption."
