NAVIGATING THROUGH INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION
Green Shipping – Technology – Fleet Renewal – Implications for Shipping Companies and Investors
The pandemic has accelerated the pace and extent of transformation the shipping industry is going through. Shipping companies are called to make critical decisions to ensure their viability and competitiveness.
