Listen to the latest edition of Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your free weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping
Italian shipowner Emanuele Grimaldi is our return guest on the podcast this week. He talks candidly about waiting for the world to restart in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, why he has launched antitrust complaints against the governments he feels are distorting the marketplace and the persistently troubling subject of roro safety in the wake of yet another care deck fire, this time aboard Grimaldi’s ro-Pax vessel Cruise Bonaria.
Euronav chief executive Hugo De Stoop talks us through his experience of the continuing bureaucratic logjam that has stranded tens of thousands of seafarers at sea in what is fast becoming a humanitarian crisis. Despite unified industry intervention, and even divine intervention from the Pope, nothing seems to be able to get the problems resolved and, as ever, seafarers are the ones left suffering
We are talking ship recycling on the podcast this week. Specifically, how we drive positive change and move this conversation on beyond the finger pointing politics that has dominated the scrapping debate for years. This edition features speakers from Standard Chartered Bank, Lloyd's Register, Norden and The Sustainable Shipping Initiative
DNV GL’s chief executive of maritime Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen believes that we are headed into a maritime renaissance. Things that we’ve traditionally done for years simply will not hold up, the tectonic shift transforming the maritime world will spur international solutions, turbo-charge digitalisation and force innovation that will fuel a revolution in shipping. He joins Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade to explain why we all need to be open to new ideas and embrace an exploratory mindset to unlock the future.
Debating shipping’s decarbonisation pathways on this week’s podcast: Peter Boyd from Yale University, Matthieu de Tugny from Bureau Veritas, Tristan Smith from University College London’s Energy Institute and Adrian Tolson from Blue Insight
The US has issued global industry guidance that details best practices to detect deceptive shipping. It means the international maritime industry will remain in the crosshairs of sanctions enforcement no matter who wins the US presidential election in November. On the podcast to dissect the implications are Lloyd’s List editor Richard Meade, markets editor Michelle Wiese Bockmann and our resident tiger at the throat of the insurance industry — David Osler.
Shipping’s new normal of remote working may turn out to be more efficient than the air-mile eating customs of old. Could coronavirus spark a renaissance in shipping, turbo charging digital developments and cultivating collaboration and data standardisation along the way? This week the podcast focuses on maritime innovation and entrepreneurship, featuring insights from Roger Holm, president of Wärtsilä’s marine power business and Matt Heider, chief executive of Nautilus Labs, one of the industry’s new wave of technology firms that specialises in ocean commerce artificial intelligence
The shipping industry’s 12-step plan to facilitate crew change was released this week and is expected to expedite a more effective government response to the crew change crisis that has seen thousands of seafarers stuck at sea for months. But it also highlights that the industry is bracing for a longer period of disruption than many had been hoping for. It’s a wartime situation, says Columbia Shipmanagement president Mark O’Neil, who joins the podcast this week, along with International Chamber of Shipping secretary-general Guy Platten. The whole industry needs to accept that there are no quick fixes and we should all be steeling ourselves for an extended campaign, argues Mr O’Neil.
This week’s podcast homes in on the container market and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The Lloyd’s List box team assess which of the major carriers are best and worst prepared, as a precursor to this month’s Lloyd’s List magazine. Joining the conversation is Sea-Intelligence’s Lars Jensen, who offers a view of what the industry may look like this time next year and beyond.
We should have been in Singapore this week, setting the agenda for digitalisation and decarbonisation. But in the absence of a Singapore Maritime Week this year we’ve drafted in guests from the heart of Maritime’s Lion City to offer up a view of how the sector is coping with the coronavirus challenges, whether we can expect the current disruption to catalyse innovation and why we should expect more disruption to come. Joining this week are Esben Poulsson, chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping and Punit Oza, who’s supremely Singaporean CV includes positions at Klaveness Asia, the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration, Institute of Chartered shipbrokers and Singapore Management University.
The doom-laden forecasts have been coming thick and fast this week, warning of the steepest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, a lost decade of growth in Latin America and a shrinking Chinese economy for the first time since 1992. To help put these figures into context and explain what the coronavirus economic fallout means for trade demand, we have this week drafted in Tom Rogers, head of macroeconomic consulting for Asia at Oxford Economics, as well as our own China editor Cichen Shen
