The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Shipping’s hydrogen future

CMB’s chief executive Alexander Saverys believes that hydrogen offers shipping’s best bet to reach a zero carbon future and he is investing heavily to that end. But even he concedes that things are moving too slowly, and greater collaboration and partnerships will be required before the technological challenges can be overcome. He joins Lloyd’s List editor Richard Meade on this week’s podcast to discuss the industry’s green investment conundrum and why a collective effort is going to be required to hit the industry’s 2050 emissions goals.

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Dire straits for shipping

On this week’s podcast we’re taking another look at the latest developments for shipping in the Strait of Hormuz and examining Lloyd’s List’s latest analysis of the Top 100 box ports. British tankers may no longer subject to price discrimination on war risk insurance for trips to the Gulf, provided they are under naval escort when transiting the Strait of Hormuz, but that suggests a level of stability in the region that doesn’t yet exist. Despite the increasingly undiplomatic diplomacy, shipping still looks to be caught in the middle of a macro turf war with few good options left open

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why the bulk bull run could last to 2021

Dry bulk spot markets are verging upon the strongest levels witnessed in a decade, while capesize bulker earnings have soared to the highest level in 14 years. But how long can this last? Joining the Lloyd’s List podcast this week to discuss the outlook for dry bulk markets is John Michael Radziwill, the chairman and chief executive at C Transport Maritime. He thinks this is a market that could last for the next 18-24 months. ‘You’ve been waiting for this and this is your time,’ he tells fellow dry bulk owners. ‘Grab every cent out of every cargo. And whatever you do — don’t order any newbuilds’
