Maritime CEO

Vote on important shipping issues

Singapore: As Maritime CEO puts its recording device down and takes a breather from interviewing the top names in shipping over the Easter weekend we open our polls to readers.

Every issue of Maritime CEO magazine finishes with our snappily titled MarPoll page where we canvass the industry about key issues. Over at Maritime CEO’s lively LinkedIn group we have posed six questions and seek your views on the following. Simply click the question to be taken to the specific poll, and, as well as answering Yes or No, feel free to leave a comment too.


1. Is LNG the ship fuel of the future?


2. Can women plug the crewing gap?


3. Are quality and safety likely to drop in the offshore sector with too many new operators and yards?


4. Shipping is no longer a clear long-term investment as overcapacity hits any ‘hot’ sector within two years. Agree? Disagree?


5.  Does the rise of social media mean shipping has to change its attitude about its public image?


6. When will private equity’s interest in shipping wane?

The results of the polls will be made available in the next issue of Maritime CEO magazine. Maritime CEO promises to make a very big splash at this year’s Posidonia in Athens.

Maritime CEO is the ideal vehicle for this most famous of global shipowner gatherings. As official media at the show, Maritime CEO has joined forces with to produce our first annual Top 50 Richest Shipowners list.

Explains Maritime CEO editor, Sam Chambers: “The maritime media is awash with subjective lists of who is more powerful than others, what we have set out do is to publish an annual objective list that lays out owners by fleet value and shows readers what each company owns.”

Elsewhere in the magazine, which is set to be a record breaker in terms of size, are regular insights into top economies around the world, market commentaries from well known names including Dagfinn Lunde on finance as well as the regular meaty centre of the magazine, the shipowner profiles. Journalists in London and Athens are currently vying with one another for the cover story – what is guaranteed is it will be a major scoop.

This issue’s Executive Opinion, where we canvass the industry on a key issue, looks at women in shipping and why their role in the sector has yet to fully take off.

Towards the back of the magazine we have expanded our regular lifestyle section for the busy maritime CEO. Readers can now take in the latest gadgets, yachting, golf, wine and books as well as acerbic comment from columnist Andrew Craig-Bennett and our mystery writer, which this issue comes from the broking community and promises to lift the lid on the skullduggery that goes on in the world of shipbroking.
