Dalian: The tenth issue of SinoShip goes live today with one of the best-known names in container shipping gracing the cover. Gerry Wang, the ceo and co-founder of Seaspan Corporation, speaks frankly about the box sector, where it is going wrong and how it can fix structural problems.
Wang told SinoShip that the container industry is now in the process of copying what the airline industry has done in terms of alliances.
The Vancouver-based executive also outlined plans to order more ships, especially larger boxships than the 14,000 teu vessels it has already ordered.
“This industry is simple – if you don't grow you will be left behind,” he said.
Elsewhere in the magazine, readers can read about China’s shale gas revolution, the thoughts of the chairman of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association, as well as our annual crewing poll and a feature on the troubled ship recycling sector plus all our regular departments.
The magazine, which will be distributed at Posidonia in Athens, is available to read online here. [19/05/14]
