New regulations on efficiency and carbon intensity for the shipping industry were introduced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2023. The measures require ships to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, making decarbonization a key consideration for all stakeholders. This has led to a focus on minimizing emissions through full optimization of port visits, as well as providing additional services such as connection to cold ironing systems. Embracing digital transformation is crucial for effective management and measurement of operations, enabling more efficient operations with fewer emissions.
The gas market continues to be a key player in the shipping industry, with increasing volumes of gas being transported via ocean tankers. Port calls by gas tankers are expected to increase significantly in 2023, with more than a dozen new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals planned in Europe as the continent moves away from importing gas via pipelines. S5 agency world is tapping into the emerging workforce for young professionals who are passionate about sustainability and driving the green agenda. Transparency in port agencies will be key in the years to come, with the ability for operators, shore personnel, and port authorities to have easy access to all the information, permits, and data they need for more efficient and sustainable operations.
