A very significant swathe of the global merchant fleet will be non-compliant during the first year of the sulphur cap, according to an ongoing survey carried on this site.
Of the 350 votes cast so far in MarPoll, our quarterly online survey, 45% of readers believe more than 20% of the global merchant fleet will fail to comply with the impending IMO-mandated sulphur cap during its first year of implementation.
Results of the survey will be published in the next issue of Maritime CEO magazine, due out later this month.
Other topics up for debate include how the Baltic Exchange creates its indices, demolition volumes this year, and the growing threat technology poses to the shipbroking community.
