In 2023, shipping has had to rise to the challenge of increasing disruption and complexity

The drive to emission reduction has created a need for fuelling transition; new advanced technology has enabled enhanced risk management, improved efficiency and data-led decision-making; and geo-political shifts and climate change have created focus on energy and food security irrespective of changing trade flows and other disruptions. But navigating change and complexity is what we do best.
