The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Should shipping be singing the GI blues?

On this week’s podcast, we are assessing the outlook for general increases, or GIs to those in the know, at the next P&I renewal round. The past two renewal rounds have seen most clubs ask for mid to high single-digit rises and early indications suggest we should brace for more, but significantly, a handful have explicitly rejected the notion of GIs altogether.
