The View

Lloyd's List's weekly view on the big issues impacting and shaping shipping, providing timely insight and thought-provoking opinion

The ‘usual speed of IMO co-operation’ is not fast enough

Anyone hoping for a wind of change to sweep in from Glasgow and spur the IMO to dispense with 71 years of history and procedure, sweep aside national differences and pull a neat solution to climate change out of its hat obviously doesn’t understand how the IMO works

International Sustainability

P&I premiums were too low, too long. Expect to pay more

You pretty much have to be a boomer to remember significant inflation. But rising prices are back, and that goes for marine insurance too

International Insurance

Message to Ms Thunberg: Shipping’s getting there slowly

The Swedish climate activist’s suggestions about where to stick climate change are clearly anatomically unfeasible. But five days of ‘blah, blah, blah’ at the COP26 summit, there are small and welcome signs of progress

International Sustainability

Shipping must not cop out, even if the UN does

A breakthrough in Glasgow would be preferable. But IMO member states must reach a deal on shipping emissions, whatever happens

International Sustainability

Nobody ever won an argument with a customer. Especially not when he’s Jeff Bezos

LNG is increasingly being written off as a fossil fuel without a scalable pathway to genuine zero-emissions fuels, and that should give pause to those with their pen hovering over the orderbook

International Containers

Don’t scapegoat shipping for the world’s just-in-time jitters

Shipping — which usually moves more than 200m teu from A to B each year — is suddenly in the news because consumers may not get what they want for Christmas on time

International Containers

The BDI: Back to 2008, but in a good way

Rollercoasters can be a lot of fun. But grown-ups tire of them eventually

International Dry Bulk

Seafarers: At the core of shipping’s present

World Maritime Day initiatives are welcome symbolic tokens of esteem, but might not be enough to make hapless cadets, ratings and officers who haven’t set foot in their own dwelling since early 2020 feel the love

International Crewing

Shipping can help Britain keep the radiators on

It’s unclear whether a gas shortage can be averted in the winter ahead, but the government can at least learn the lessons for the future

United Kingdom Ports and Logistics

The unbroken laws of supply and demand

Scarcity drives up prices. So why would container lines offer their limited capacity for less than they could earn for it? The answer may lie in the long game

International CMA CGM

All hail the smart shipping revolution

Welcome to the era of hyper-connectivity, which will divide the industry between the brave and the timid

Digital Disruption Environment

Maersk is taking welcome gamble on carbon-neutral boxships

The scale of this billion-dollar-plus order signifies real commitment to sustainability. Others, please note
