Despite all the positive examples of innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration, shipping still struggles to move from siloed projects to scale because standardisation across such a fragmented sector is notoriously difficult. It is just one of many issues on the agenda this week as we take a sneak preview of what’s to come at next week’s Lloyd’s List Outlook Forum with founder and chief executive officer of innovation hub and accelerator Optima-X Angelica Kemene.
BW has pioneered dual-fuelled LPG engines and recently announced a world first with a VLGC voyage on full LPG propulsion across the Pacific. It’s a voyage expected to produce 20% less greenhouse gas emissions and use 10% less fuel. Given the chorus of pro-LNG dual-fuel zealots out there right now, it’s perhaps surprising that LPG hasn’t managed work its way higher up the agenda. BW’s technology and operations chief Pontus Berg joins our reporter Inderpreet Walia this week to offer a fresh look at LPG
Entrepreneurial minds promise fresh ideas that can catalyse much-needed change and break down the traditional silos that have always dogged shipping’s fragmented sectors, so why is there is still a resistance to change and a reluctance to adopt new technological solutions in shipping? We are joined this week by the venture development firm Rainmaking to discuss innovation, entrepreneurship and how fresh ideas and start ups are needed to kick shipping into a zero-carbon future
Containerships are averaging one fire every two weeks so far in 2020, so while we have not seen a Yantian Express, Maersk Honam or an MSC Flaminia hit the headlines, the likelihood of a large casualty is largely down to luck rather than any improvement in the risk management of this too often overlooked situation. Joining the podcast this week to discuss why the boxes are burning: Allianz head of marine risk, Rahul Khanna, Gard senior claim executive Are Solum, and TT Club risk management director Peregrine Storrs-Fox
Stener Stenersen, DNV GL’s head of technical support Norway, and Bjorn-Johan Vartdal, digital director for maritime, join Lloyd’s List chief correspondent Richard Clayton to discuss the next steps in the journey to digital solutions in this special edition of the Lloyd’s List Podcast
On our podcast this week, senior reporter and editor of the Lloyd's List magazine Linton Nightingale is joined by the chair of our editorial board Janet Porter and Container Trades Statistics chief executive Peter Webber. The trio chew the fat over the history of CTS and how it came to be, while analysing the latest container trade volume data which points to an unlikely peak season as the industry recovers from the initial impact of Covid-19
On the Lloyd’s List Podcast this week our Greece correspondent Nigel Lowry join editor Richard Meade to discuss how the Greek shipping sector is coping with Covid and dealing with decarbonisation as the industry prepares for a digital Posidonia week of forums
Listen to a special edition podcast produced in association with Hyde Marine that examines the state of play with the Ballast Water Management Convention, which came into force a year ago but has been overshadowed by the coronavirus pandemic
ABS chief Christopher Wiernicki is our return guest this week, covering decarbonisation pathways, shipbuilding decisions, the threat of regionalism in climate change policy and why a rapid mindset shift is required from the shipping industry to keep up with the pace and scope of changes afoot
Listen to the second of three special edition podcasts produced in association with DNV GL examining the tectonic shift shaping shipping’s future: decarbonisation, alternative fuels and digitalisation
The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Trafigura wants to add $300 per tonne of CO2 to its bunker bill, here’s why
Commodities trader Trafigura is calling for ‘drastic’ measures to speed up the decarbonisation of shipping through a bunker levy charge as well as pushing for measures that include enforced slow steaming. Without urgent action, the industry risks costly regional confusion, slow update of zero-emission fuels and the inevitability of having decisions forced upon them. A level playing field is essential, argues this week’s podcast guest, Trafigura’s global head of fuel decarbonisation, Rasmus Bach Nielsen — the industry cannot afford not to take action
The International Union of Marine Insurance offers an essential snapshot of maritime risk every year via its globe-trotting annual get together, but for obvious reasons this year was a virtual event over two weeks. We offer a condensed canter through the key takeaways courtesy of IUMI’s secretary general Lars Lange
