Stacy’s session, “Demand for Decisions,” takes place Wednesday, October 12, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.


There is a “new normal” facing shipping today which needs to be addressed in order to be successful moving forward. Public demands for ESG are accelerating, warnings about climate change are being heard, lending practices are changing, technology is advancing, and other impacts. Are these threats for shipping or opportunity?
