The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why data is an opportunity, not a cost

Joining Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade this week in the hot seat is Inmarsat Maritime president, Ronald Spithout. …..The shipping industry is experiencing a period of accelerated digital changeFor those at the vanguard of this brave new digital world these changes have the potential to add value and enhance efficiency across an increasingly integrated global supply chain.And yet most of the innovation we have seen over the past five years is about optimising current business models, rather than disrupting the status quo with new ones.That’s now changing and nowhere has that inflection point been more visible than in the satellite communications sector where the shift from simply selling data and communication access, to finding new efficiencies and potentially new business models is very much the order of the day. For this week’s podcast we visited the London HQ of Sat Comms giant Inmarsat and spoke to their maritime president, Ronald Spithout about the pace of change in digitalisation and why the conversations he is having with his clients has now fundamentally changed.

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Shipping infected by coronavirus

When China sneezes, we all catch the flu, but shipping seems to have initially underestimated quite how significant the impact of the coronavirus outbreak was going to be. It is now painfully clear that the extended shutdown of China will temporarily cripple the shipping markets and hit hard on freight rates well beyond the current schedule disruption and yard delays. In this week’s podcast we get the latest market analysis from BIMCO’s chief analyst Peter Sand, we talk to Andrew Rigden Green, a leading shipping lawyer from Stephenson Harwood about charterparty risk and we get the inside track on the latest market disruption direct from our China editor Cichen Shen.

British tankers may no longer subject to price discrimination on war risk insurance for trips to the Gulf, provided they are under naval escort when transiting the Strait of Hormuz, but that suggests a level of stability in the region that doesn’t yet exist. Despite the increasingly undiplomatic diplomacy shipping still looks to be caught in the middle of a macro turf war with few good options left open
