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
The pre-COP26 optimism that climate politics may finally being starting to move at pace has ended in a depressingly predictable cop-out inside the IMO this week. This week’s podcast looks at what happened, what didn’t happen and why multilateral negotiations are necessarily slow to deliver results, even amid a climate emergency
The industry has been missing a comprehensive and easy-to-understand overview of the dry bulk FFA, but no more! John Banaszkiewicz, one of the founding fathers of freight futures in shipping, joins the podcast this week to explain why the risk management tool had its best year ever in 2021
Those representing shipping at the COP26 climate talks have left broadly optimistic about some progress amid the hot air and greenwashing, but the litmus test will be what happens when the IMO begins its discussions on climate once the circus has moved on from Glasgow. Dissecting what COP26 has meant for shipping and what this means for IMO talks, we have shipping’s Climate Champion within the COP26 talks Katharine Palmer and chief executive of the Global Maritime Forum Johannah Christensen joining the podcast this week
With major cargo interests rejecting LNG tonnage and the World Bank taking its case to stop building additional LNG bunkering infrastructure to the IMO, the decarbonising credentials of liquefied natural gas have taken something of a battering of late. This week’s edition offers the counterpoint to that criticism via Peter Keller, chairman of the pro-LNG lobby group SEA-LNG
Why does COP26 matter to shipping, and what does the difference between a good COP and a bad COP look like for the industry? This week’s Lloyd’s List podcast explains why progress at COP26 will directly inform the pace of change inside the IMO and why failure will slow investment, undermine the IMO and amplify financial risk for the entire sector. Our expert panel of guests this week includes Felipe Calderón, the former president of Mexico, Nick Mabey, who heads up the leading environmental think tank E3G and the Shipping Lead on the United Nations’ Climate Champions team, Katharine Palmer
On this week’s podcast, we are assessing the outlook for general increases, or GIs to those in the know, at the next P&I renewal round. The past two renewal rounds have seen most clubs ask for mid to high single-digit rises and early indications suggest we should brace for more, but significantly, a handful have explicitly rejected the notion of GIs altogether. We get the expert analysis from Mark Cracknell, head of cargo and marine at megabroker Marsh JLT Specialty, Stephen Hawke, managing director of Lockton’s P&I broker affiliate PL Ferrari and West of England’s chief executive Tom Bowsher.
As scrutiny of the subterfuge shipping fleet skirting sanctions to deliver blocked cargoes has intensified, the tactics being deployed by the murkier end of the maritime sector have rapidly evolved. This week’s edition of the podcast peers behind the increasingly complicated network of opaque tactic and institutions being set up to obfuscate sanctions evasion at sea. Featuring insights from: BIMCO, Lloyd’s List Intelligence, sanctions expert Michelle Wiese Bockmann and C4ADS, a non-profit group that investigates how data impacts security and international conflicts
Wärtsilä Voyage’s Cloud Simulation capability has been made available on Ocean Technologies Group’s Ocean Learning Platform only six months after the two companies formed a partnership
In a week when there weren’t enough truck drivers to deliver petrol across England, and crops rotted in the field because of a labour shortage, the Lloyd’s List podcast asks: How is shipping planning for the future?
It’s a special World Maritime Day edition of the podcast this week and International Maritime Organization secretary-general Kitack Lim joins us to offer his view, not only on the future vision for seafarers, but also the immediate problems that industry, institutions and governments have seemingly been unable to resolve
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
