Richard Heath
World Container Index

Richard Heath is the leader of the World Container Index, a new initiative with the aim of increasing transparency in the container industry and fostering a liquid and sustainable container derivatives market. With an academic background in Maritime Economics and professional experience in the physical container market covering a number of key trades and culminating in the design and implementation of strategy and contract management for large accounts, Richard's experience uniquely qualifies him to spearhead the development of this nascent market.

Richard says "I work with all sectors of the industry to actively promote the use of index linked contracting and freight derivatives helping market participants manage risk and leverage these new freight procurement tools, which have the potential to revolutionise container shipping."
