Paul TOURRET, Director, ISEMAR

Low freight rates, dry bulk and container crisis, bankruptcy: these are all obstacles that the international and European shipping industry needs to overcome. How can the current trend be reversed to return to a healthy, dynamic market? What changes are being made by the sector to surmount these obstacles? Can European shipbuilders emerge stronger from this period of obstacles?

Shipping is one of the most innovative industries, both in terms of achieving successful energy transition and improving navigation security. There are many current and future projects: new propulsion methods (LNG, methanol, hybrid, etc.), from new on-board equipment to improve vessel energy efficiency, to the question of navigation automation. Subjects that, while often synonymous with new competences and new jobs, are responsible for the economic future of the sector.
