Rumours of the death of the traditional shipowner may have been greatly exaggerated, but the industry’s modus operandi is undergoing profound changes.

Buying 15-year-old ships and bleeding them dry until the last possible scrapping date is no longer a sustainable strategy, but equally those looking to find cash streams in the digital exhaust of shipping’s automated, inter-connected future have not yet found a viable new business model. The transformation calls for business model innovation and significant investment in new technologies and fuel types, but there are few certainties and long-term investments are riddled with risk.

The path towards digitalisation and decarbonisation exposes the shipping industry to the possibility of stranded assets, and yet business as usual looks equally problematic as a business strategy. As the entire industry grapples with a generational re-think in terms of shipping’s value proposition, Lloyd’s List will gather together the industry’s leading operators and strategists to offer an insiders’ view on how to make money in the brave new world of shipping’s digitalised and decarbonised future.
