    The Lloyd's List Podcast: Crewing crisis reaches boiling point

    The Lloyd's List Podcast: Crewing crisis reaches boiling point

    Governments have this week pledged to speed up efforts to get hundreds of thousands of stranded merchant sailors home, but this comes after months of similar rhetoric and limited action. So can we expect things to change? International Maritime Organization secretary general Kitack lim – our guest on this week’s podcast – says yes. We are, he argues, in a wartime situation with the pandemic. Government responses have required time to heart up, but they are have now reached boiling point and the recent pledges are more than just promises.

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: The new normal, according to Sadan Kaptanoglu

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: The new normal, according to Sadan Kaptanoglu

    When Şadan Kaptanoğlu was elected President of BIMCO – the world’s largest shipping association – back in May 2019, she knew that the tectonic shifts in shipping would mean a busy agenda.
    A year into her tenure grappling with shipping’s response to the environment, security and digitalization, she now has the added burden of how to lead through a global pandemic that’s wiped over a billion tonnes of trade off the forecasts and created a crewing crisis with tens of thousands of seafarers being left stranded at sea as governments struggle to stabilize in the wake of an economic and social tsunami.
    Sadan talks to Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade about shipping’s new normal, how shipping can better communicate both internally and externally and what the global economic turbulence means for shipping over the coming years.

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Emanuele Grimaldi on waiting for the world to restart

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Emanuele Grimaldi on waiting for the world to restart

    Our podcast guest this week is a return guest, Emanuele Grimaldi, one of the co-owners of Italy’s Grimaldi Group, which operates a significant fleet of car carriers and roro ferries. As he put it in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal – “We are waiting for the World to restart” – a sentiment no doubt shared by many of his peers.
    In this week’s interview we talk about his expectations for a recovery, but we also explore why he has felt it necessary to launch antitrust complaints against the governments he feels are distorting the marketplace by bailing out weak shipping lines at the expense of those operating in the same trades that are well capitalised.
    We also touch on the subject of roro safety in the wake of yet another care deck fire, this time aboard Grimaldi’s ro-Pax vessel Cruise Bonaria. Although the incident was not a serious one, a recent spate of fires has raised safety concerns and reignited Mr Grimaldi’s long standing concerns regarding safety rules, cargo misdeclaration and electrical issues that responsible for the vast majority of fires board these types of vessels.

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Navigating the crewing crisis

    Euronav chief executive Hugo De Stoop joins the podcast this week to talk us through his experience of the continuing bureaucratic logjam that has stranded tens of thousands of seafarers at sea and is fast becoming a humanitarian crisis. Despite unified industry intervention and even some divine intervention from the Pope this week supporting seafarers, nothing seems to be able to get the problems resolved and, as ever, seafarers are the ones left suffering as we wait for political solutions.

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: How to make ship recycling sustainable

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Reasons to be cheerful

    The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Reasons to be cheerful

    Times are tough across the industry right now, but there is a silver linings playbook for those prepared to look beyond the obvious and immediate crises in front of us and embrace a collaborative future with new eyes.
    That’s the view of our guest this week - DNVGL’s chief executive of maritime Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, who believes that we are headed into a maritime renaissance. Things that we have traditionally done for years simply will not hold up, he argues, the tectonic shift transforming the maritime world will spur international solutions, turbo-charging digitalization and forcing innovation that will fuel a revolution in shipping.

Great topics but poor sound quality

I have really enjoyed the discussions on these podcasts, I work in the shipping world and it’s great to hear all the different views.
The downside for me is the poor audio quality, I have to really turn the volume up to hear the guest speaker then get an ear drum blast part way through of the music!
