Carriers may be following the letter of the law, but not necessarily the spirit of it, and are not behaving like good corporate citizens, according to our guest this week. Daniel Maffei is the chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission — the Washington agency responsible for regulating the US ocean shipping trades so when he tells liner bosses to ‘put on their commonsense caps’ they should probably listen
This week we dissect the key takeaways from London International Shipping Week and IUMI, covering everything from the environmental debates as industry and politicians jostle for position in advance of COP26, the rising dominance of Chinese marine insurance, and why the UK shipping minister may need to offer more than tales of his teenage bedroom wall to win round the shipping industry
In the latest edition of this special bonus run of podcasts for London International Shipping Week, we are looking at why shipping is telling the wrong story. How can the industry build a better reputation, and who should be responsible for reframing the conversation? Those are the questions on the table today at LISW so we are offering you an exclusive early insight into one of the key debates of the week
In the latest edition of this special bonus run of podcasts for London International Shipping Week, we are joined by Katy Ware, director of UK Maritime Services and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency and permanent representative of the UK to the IMO. She discusses the current status of the UK Ship Register, post Brexit direction and the challenges for British shipping, dealing with decarbonisation as a solo nation and her goals before next London Shipping Week
The second edition of our special London International Shipping Week daily podcast features outgoing UK Chamber of Shipping chief executive Bob Sanguinetti on the state of British shipping, Brexit, cyclical government support for shipping and the vexed question of decarbonising the global supply chain
In the first of our special London International Shipping Week daily editions of the Lloyd’s List Podcast we talk to Paddy Rodgers from the National Maritime Museum and Julian Clark from Ince, two of the driving forces behind a special awards ceremony celebrating the Unsung Heroes of shipping
Taylor Maritime founder Ed Buttery started planning his moves in 2013 while working for Nordea, hoping for the best, but well aware of the blows that shipping markets tend to deliver optimists. He has now positioned himself inside a market highpoint with a successful initial public offering in London. Luck comes to those who are best prepared, he argues. He joins the podcast to discuss London’s place as a centre for maritime business, why older vessels run well make sense financially and environmentally, and what’s next for Taylor Maritime
Perhaps the biggest conundrum in shipping is how shipowners can order new ships when they don’t know which fuel will be specified as environmentally sound and safe for the crew, and widely available. Moreover, how can they comply with regulations that won’t be in place until 2030 or 2040? The answer, says DNV in its Maritime Forecast 2050, is to work with class and other partners on a step-by-step approach to ensure compliance at each stage. The Lloyd’s List Podcast explains how this week as Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, chief executive officer of DNV Maritime, joins chief correspondent Richard Clayton to unpack some of the elements in the Maritime Forecast
Spoiler alert — the container crunch is going to get worse before it gets better. With the seasonal surge in demand only adding to the existing chaos there is no immediate end in sight to the supply chain disruption that has generated one of the most extraordinary container markets ever witnessed. The Lloyd’s List Podcast takes a step back this week to consider the state of container shipping, what happens next and why rates are unlikely to return to previous market norms
Methanol is the focus for this week’s podcast. Specifically, green methanol and how the industry can scale up the limited production of the truly carbon-neutral supply and move to a more transparent accounting of fuel choices via a ‘well-to-wake’ assessment of lifecycle emissions. Featuring in the discussions this week are: Berit Hinnemann, head of decarbonisation business development at AP Moller-Maersk and Chris Chatterton, chief operating officer of the Methanol Institute
The consensus findings of the world’s leading climate scientists were issued this week as a ‘code red for humanity’. We are already too late to avert dangerous climate change and can only now manage the amount by which we overshoot our stated target, argues our guest on this week’s podcast, the leading climate expert of low-carbon shipping Dr Tristan Smith. He joins Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade to discuss the IPCC report, what it means for shipping, why LNG is going to get more expensive and whether there is any optimism he can offer as we consider shipping’s difficult transition to zero carbon
P&I premiums for shipowners could cost half as much again in four years’ time. In this week’s podcast, we talk to Alex Vullo, the Gallagher analyst whose forecast this week predicted a 50% rise and North Group’s chief underwriting officer Thya Kathiravel about why some clubs are better placed than others
