Shipping & Ports

The international shipping industry has an undisputed, major contribution to global transportation & logistics. The shipping industry has historically been highly cyclical, experiencing significant volatility in vessel values, freight rates and shareholder returns. It is highly affected by changes in the international economic and political environment. Increasing regulation, volatility in financial markets, risk of piracy, technological breakthroughs and environmental concerns have added to a very challenging business environment that puts even experienced shipping executives to the test.
