The annual Lloyd’s List Outlook Forum and industry poll is a reliably insightful gauge of issues keeping business chiefs awake at night and this year regulatory uncertainty, looming overcapacity, a workforces skills crisis and supply chain disruption emerged as the hot topics causing sleepless nights. The podcast this week offers a view from the Outlook Forum panellists, explaining why business leaders need to juggle short- and long-term risk management
SHIPPING has never been short of risk, but the long list of potential perils keeping the industry awake at night seems to be growing ever longer by the year.
And it’s that time of the year where Lloyd’s List likes to take stock of the hazards and threats facing the industry via an annual poll, and the must-attend event of the season that is the Lloyd’s List Outlook Forum.
Those who joined the live debate on November 30 will have clocked the headlines revealing that regulatory uncertainty, compliance cost and supply chain disruption have predictably topped the list of industry concerns shaping business decisions this year.
If you missed it, fear not, this week’s edition of the Podcast features some choice insights and extras not broadcast, but you can also watch the whole event on demand here.
The fact that lack of regulatory clarity is concerning business leaders is unsurprising, but balancing regulatory uncertainty with the more immediate concerns of supply chain disruption, inflation and a looming workforce skills crisis is going to require maritime business leaders to juggle short- and long-term risk management.
Those who can keep all the balls in the air and move the industry ahead at pace on key issues such as the zero-carbon transition will remain in the game.
Those found to be dropping balls are increasingly at risk in a market that is only going to become more complex.
