SHIPPINGInsight 20/20: A Vision for the Decade

Welcome to a new year- and a new decade!  We are facing the most dynamic and pivotal period in maritime history- and SHIPPINGInsight is right in the middle of it!

SHIPPINGInsight 20/20 will feature expertise from around the world on topics that will either make, or break, the mold of shipping.  Topics that will be covered in October include:

Decade of Decarbonization– focusing on strategies to achieve ambitious goals to combat climate change
Decade of Digitalization—how will the Fourth Industrial Revolution support the industry’s need to deploy the most advanced technologies to increase its operational and financial efficiency?
Decade of Declaration as the public gets more vocal, and organized, around our social license to operate
Decade of Data– data is King (or Queen) but it needs to be managed and presented in a useable fashion.  Further the flow of data needs to be seamless requiring advanced communications tools
Decade of Disclosure– between regulatory requirements and tracking tools, the industry is being driven to transparency
Decade of Daring– the cyber attacks being promulgated around the world are constant.  Do we have the tools for protection?
Decade of Dashboards– owners are looking for ease of use.  Is it out there?
Decade of Disruption– we need to look for new ways of thinking about old problems and change– everything
Decade of Development– new tech requires investment and faith
Decade of Discernment—due diligence is important as not all solutions work on ships!
Decade of Deals– the industry is consolidating.  How will this unfold?
Decade of Discussion– we need to come together as an industry to collaborate on the pathway forward including how we are training and caring for mariners
Decade of Diversity– our industry needs to become more inclusive of the many forms in which talent appears
Decade of Design– new hull shapes, new bridge and cargo configurations, and new practices
Decade of Discipline– let’s not repeat the errors of the 2000’s.  We need to order responsibly, and smartly!
Decade of Drones– providing intelligence, products and more

And more!!

2020 is going to be the start of a dynamic decade.  We look forward to working with you to make it efficient, productive, and prosperous!

Keep optimizing,
