Lloyd’s List Posidonia Week Forum available on demand
The panel discussion looked at the biggest questions facing shipping and the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic
Lloyd’s List recently hosted a panel of top shipowning names who offered their views and insights on a range of issues, including whether the risks-rewards balance for the owner has changed in an era of increased volatility and disruptions to global trade growth
THE Lloyd’s List Posidonia Week Forum, hosted in co-operation with the organisers of Posidonia, is now available to view on demand.
Among the topics discussed by the expert panel were the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic on shipping, including the accelerated uptake of digital solutions, the crew-change crisis and discouragement from ordering new vessels, which could lead to strong freight markets and improved returns for those that invest wisely.
There was general acceptance though that the biggest game changer for the industry in the longer term is decarbonisation, and it is this subject that brings most concerns to shipowners.
Hosted by Lloyd’s List’s Nigel Lowry, the panel consists of:
Petros Pappas, chief executive of Star Bulk
Sadan Kaptanoglu, owner of Kaptanoglu Shipping and president of BIMCO
Ioanna Procopiou, chief executive of Sea Traders and Prominence Maritime
