Maritime transport is a capital intensive yet very cyclical business that goes through periods of continuous booms and busts, with operators enjoying strong earnings sometimes, or struggling to meet minimum costs most of the time.
That is why many maritime jobs are high in intensity and keeping the people firmly engrossed. Over time, their collective experience helps them stay in an industry that is viewed as conservative and resistant to change.
But things always change. Apart from the cycles, financialisation of shipping, technologies and de-globalisation* have started to affect the ways shipping happen and less visibly the many people lives that depend on it.
We are at a juncture to decide and take actions – when everyone is busy doing everything, someone has to do something to prepare for the changes.
