The shipping industry is the backbone of international trade, contributing to the globalisation and development of the world, but it's the shipping people who makes the world go around.
This is where you meet the maritime professionals, strong characters with an interesting background.
188 Alice Amundsen, Vice President/Senior Adviser Gard AS
To be able to make a difference in someone's life. In episode 188, you will listen to Alice Amundsen, Vice President/Senior Adviser Gard AS. She has been the Head of People's Claims, which means that she has been able to make a difference in other people's lives. We talk about the difficulties during the pandemic in giving medical assistance to crew onboard ships. Alice is appalled by the countries that refused t repatriate the bodies of the deceased seafarers. Seafarers must be designated keyworkers!
More governments need to recognise seafarers as key workers and entitle them to the rights required.
Your feedback will be very much appreciated.
Thanks for listening.

An uncertain world and the impact on logistical chains

184 Pernilla Trygg, Chief Engineer and Shipowner
Digitalisation for real
Pernilla Trygg, who comes from a family of mariners, went to sea in 1996 and then studied to become a Chief Engineer. She has been working at the sea for several years and is now a surveyor for a classification society.
Pernilla is the proud Owner of the M/S STOCKHOLM, trading to Svalbard. It's Pernillas hobby, she says, but from what she tells about the ship, it's more of a lifestyle.
Our conversation is broad. We discuss the ongoing digitalisation - how is it going? What are the benefits, and is it thought through before implementation?
And what happened in the maritime industry after #metoo? Have we managed to reinvent ourselves to be attractive to the next generation? What about leadership?
There is a reference in our chat to episode 109 with Cecilia Österman, here is the link if you want to listen.
Listen to Pernilla and give us a shoutout of your opinion, or drop me a line at email@example.com
Thank you for listening
183 Peter Sand, Chief Analyst Xeneta
Shipping - more than only the maritime leg of the supply chain that is obvious to Peter Sand, Chief Analyst Xeneta and maybe now we can hope that the world can see the importance of shipping and the people working in it. Peter asks us to put everything in perspective; the Evergiven, the Pandemic, and the Ukrainian crises. Of course, he is right. He also thinks that shipping is a peacemaker, as odd as it sounds. Trade and transport of goods always include two parties that need to agree. Let's pray that this latest crisis also will en in peace.
Good podcast with a good mix of topics.
We want to hear Hans Hederström, head of CSMART training in Almere, NL. Also Ted Bågfeldt, Head of Kalmar Maritime Academy.
Christmas special with shipping women
This period we who follow the Shipping podcast get a christmas treat - shipping women - and a new episode every day! Thanks to Lena Gothberg we get to meet all these highly professional women, on various positions in the industry. It's so intersting to listen to the conversations, and I do hope that many others will follow in the footsteps of these ladies.
Shipping is about people
Shipping is a great transport mode which transport large volyme of gods over the oceans in an environmental effective way. We transport gods 24/7 in ice, sun, storm etc. How is all this possible? Due to the competent people in shipping. In the excellent series you will meet this people and by that learn more about shipping.
