As world trade continues to bounce back, trade volumes have been predicted to surpass pre-pandemic levels. This is not the time to rest on one’s laurels—ship owners must brace themselves for the surge in trade volumes.

Ship owners undertake a huge responsibility, comprising ship operations, seaworthiness, safety issues and ecological responsibilities. Not forgetting, ensuring commercial viability is at the forefront of any company.

Given the innumerable sources of news, choosing suitable ones can be perplexing. For a start, shipping news sites need to deliver timely, accurate information, with a wide coverage about international news, as that affects global trade. Readability, ease of use and convenience are also essential aspects to consider.

Here are 5 established and recognised sites we recommend for reliable shipping and maritime news and updates.

Over the course of 35 years, Griffin Kinetic has played a vital role in many ship rescue missions. This one details the role Griffin Kinetic played when a Singapore cargo ship sank in the sea of Karwar coast. With Griffin Kinetic’s expertise and strong network, it was able to salvage 4 complete cranes and transport it safely from Karwar Port to Shanghai.

In these unprecedented times of an ongoing pandemic, the maritime logistics industry has shown fortitude. Since enduring the impacts of sharp falls in global trade volumes in the early stages of COVID-19, projected recovery is delicate, considering now the spillover effect of the pandemic.

With the gradual easing of lockdowns and introduction of government stimulus packages, an erratic surge in demand for manufactured consumer goods has brought about another issue—the growing shortage of empty shipping containers. The impact of container shortage is exacerbated by port congestion and unplanned spikes in ship calls, as well as decreased workforce and higher processing costs due to pandemic protocols and restrictions.

The brunt of this string of crises continues, while pre-pandemic issues remain unresolved. As the global economy recovers, here are some expected challenges for the industry.

2020 has been one of the most challenging years for the maritime logistics industry, faced with the outbreak of the coronavirus which brought an unprecedented disruption to international shipping trade. The pandemic has sent shockwaves through supply chains, shipping networks and ports, resulting in a reduction of cargo volumes all over the world. Now that we are at the halfway mark of 2021, let’s turn our attention to 5 recent trends observed in the shipping industry worldwide as maritime companies continue adjusting to the “new normal” of the world.
