Panel Discussion: 

The real challenges for global shipping in economics and geopolitics to 2030 and beyond

Panel discussion with global commodity firm, energy major, economist and shipping analyst.

This decade has already seen a pandemic, armed conflicts, economic volatility, and political uncertainty as well as the implementation challenge of decarbonising the industry.  The session will look at the expectations for the rest of the decade, how supply chains will evolve to adapt and counter these challenges and what the industry might look like in 2030.

Breakout Session 1 

UK Supply Chain Trends: What will be the expectations for the rest of the decade, what will be the efficiency gains and how will the economic levers change the demands for cargoes?

Breakout Session 2 

Maritime Tourism:  After the existential crisis of the pandemic, what will be the opportunities for the sector (ferry and cruise), the operational impact of sustainability targets and the challenge of a demanding customer base?


The transformational opportunities for the industry

Breakout Session 1 – Data Transformation 

Shipping companies have started to improve their services through digital optimisation, but how will this continue to develop as datasets become sufficiently large and diverse to enable operational gains.

Breakout Session 2 – Human resource – at sea and ashore

Looking at the future seafarer, and team ashore and the move, through technology, of operations, maintenance, optimisation, and verification to shore basing.  What skills will people need, how will they be trained and where will they come from?
