The immediate challenge for shipping is regulatory. Meeting the 2020 Sulphur regulations requires careful management but ultimately it will be the push to decarbonise by 2050 that sparks a digitally-fuelled revolution requiring a step change in innovation across the industry.

Fuel technology, from LNG to hydrogen will require R&D budgets to meet an ambitious generational goal, but innovation will no longer focus on the vessel, rather the efficiency of an increasingly integrated global supply chain.

For some, it is about technology (digital ships, AI, autonomy). For others, digitalisation offers a new way of engaging with customers (trading platforms, blockchain, trade finance security). And for others still, it represents an entirely new way of doing business (digital operation, ship-as-a-service, value beyond the vessel). 


Key Topics for Discussion


Much of the innovation underway is less a thing and more a new way of doing things. And while data offers many opportunities it is already showing up the vulnerabilities of existing systems (cyber risk and the inherent fragmentation of data in seaborne supply chains). Ensuring each new system is interoperable with both existing and new models requires collaboration along the whole chain and a level of data governance that has so far proved to be out of reach. The Lloyd’s List Innovation Forum will bring together the leading innovators already collaborating on projects within the shipping industry with those from outside the traditional shipping space seeking more efficient ways of connecting the supply chain.
