PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE: "THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT TOO MUCH IS EXPECTED OF THE SHIPPING INDUSTRY ON ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS"

For an industry with the size, complexity and importance of global shipping, new regulations from ballast water management to fuel regulations to decarbonisation present the industry with a significant cost and challenge. Is the regulatory agenda faced by the shipping industry appropriate? Is too much expected of the industry, not least given the scale of the change and timeline involved? Who will pay for these changes?

FLEET MANAGEMENT OF THE FUTURE


Shipowners have already invested significantly in technology to physically improve the performance of their vessels, but the next wave to truly optimise their fleet operations is digitalisation. Panellists will discuss how shipowners and managers can take advantage of digital technologies and utilise to improve the performance of their fleets. It is a task that is larger than any one technology provider or shipowner. Speakers will address the key challenge of collaboration and cooperation in the industry to unlock the true potential of digitalisation.
