Ownership structures in shipping should become more transparent

Ownership structures in shipping should become more transparent, early results from our latest survey overwhelmingly shows.

MarPoll, the quarterly online survey carried by Splash and Maritime CEO magazine, features nine topical questions ranging from emissions to shipping cycles, big boxships, technology and shipbroking.

83% of those surveyed so far believe shipowning needs to become more transparent.

“Too much malfeasance continues to be enabled by anonymity. Swiss banking is being held accountable, why not shipping?” one respondent mused.

“Transparency equals trust and the industry has a long way to go to restore the trust of its customers,” another reader commented.

Voting takes a couple of minutes and there is no registration. Results will be carried in the next issue of Maritime CEO magazine due out in time for SMM, the world’s biggest shipping show, which takes place in Hamburg in early September.
