The Lloyd’s List Podcast: From freeports to carbon-free shipping

The European Parliament wants shipping put under the EU’s emissions cap and trade system and it’s not clear the industry has yet clocked the full implications of this latest political salvo. Meanwhile, in the UK, the government plan to create up to 10 freeports to ‘turbocharge’ trade in the wake of Britain leaving the European Union is raising political questions. We’re joined by the British Ports Association and the UK Major Ports Group to dissect what it means for the industry

The Interview: Nusrat Ghani

When Nusrat Ghani talked to Lloyd’s List last week, she noticeably spoke about her roles as UK Shipping Minister in the past tense. There was speculation that she could be in line for promotion. Instead, she has been sacked as part of prime minister Boris Johnson’s reshuffle. She leaves the UK maritime sector, relatively speaking, in a good place, enjoying a period high-profile status within UK government and will be remembered as one of the most effective maritime ministers of recent years.
