2021: Europe’s year for shipping’s regulations

Shipping just got a taster of the disruption yet to come

Shipping’s resilience has been tested this year, but a low orderbook does not save a market and the immediate future is riddled with uncertainty.

Jonathan Chappell
The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Will tankers recover before 2022?
