THIS week we’re in glorious Gothenburg for the Lloyd’s List Intelligence annual executive meeting.
This is the event lead by our consulting division that brings together Sweden’s maritime sector — a group that punches above its weight when it comes to global influence — and uses the combined intellectual firepower to examine the hot topics of the moment in shipping.
Topics at this year’s event ranged from sanctions and security to decarbonisation and future fuels with some very useful forecasts for the year ahead along the way.
Sitting down at the Lloyd’s List Microphone this week we have Erik Hanell, who runs Sweden’s Stena Bulk, offering some startling insights into security in the wake of last year’s Stena Impero affair in the Strait of Hormuz.
But we start with markets editor Michelle Wiese Bockmann talking to our own Christopher Pålsson, who heads up Lloyd’s List Intelligence’s consulting team, with Jorgen Karlsson, head of ABB marine and ports division in Sweden.
Shipping market surprises are on the agenda and — spoiler alert — tanker bulls should prepare for a controversial view on supply forecast, along with some interesting chat around innovation and alternative fuels research underway in Scandinavia.
