Why shipping’s MRV regulation must target cargo owners

In October 2019, the market capitalisation of oil major Royal Dutch Shell was 600 times higher than that of shipowner Teekay Tankers, one of the largest tanker companies. The EU’s CO2 monitoring, reporting and verification scheme’s focus on a company such as Teekay misses an important point

Angelica Kemene
The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Is shipping still a Luddite sector?

Despite all the positive examples of innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration, shipping still struggles to move from siloed projects to scale because standardisation across such a fragmented sector is notoriously difficult. It is just one of many issues on the agenda this week as we take a sneak preview of what’s to come at next week’s Lloyd’s List Outlook Forum with founder and chief executive officer of innovation hub and accelerator Optima-X Angelica Kemene.



The Pontus podcast
The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Has LPG been overlooked as a transitional fuel?

BW has pioneered dual-fuelled LPG engines and recently announced a world first with a VLGC voyage on full LPG propulsion across the Pacific. It’s a voyage expected to produce 20% less greenhouse gas emissions and use 10% less fuel. Given the chorus of pro-LNG dual-fuel zealots out there right now, it’s perhaps surprising that LPG hasn’t managed work its way higher up the agenda. BW’s technology and operations chief Pontus Berg joins our reporter Inderpreet Walia this week to offer a fresh look at LPG

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Do we need entrepreneurs to save shipping?

Entrepreneurial minds promise fresh ideas that can catalyse much-needed change and break down the traditional silos that have always dogged shipping’s fragmented sectors, so why is there is still a resistance to change and a reluctance to adopt new technological solutions in shipping? We are joined this week by the venture development firm Rainmaking to discuss innovation, entrepreneurship and how fresh ideas and start ups are needed to kick shipping into a zero-carbon future

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why are so many boxships burning?

Containerships are averaging one fire every two weeks so far in 2020, so while we have not seen a Yantian Express, Maersk Honam or an MSC Flaminia hit the headlines, the likelihood of a large casualty is largely down to luck rather than any improvement in the risk management of this too often overlooked situation. Joining the podcast this week to discuss why the boxes are burning: Allianz head of marine risk, Rahul Khanna, Gard senior claim executive Are Solum, and TT Club risk management director Peregrine Storrs-Fox
