Global Maritime Trends event
A packed auditorium of over 100 people listened to Dr. Martin Christopher, Emeritus Professor of Marketing & Logistics at Cranfield University, UK and Dr. Martin Stopford, Non-Executive President at Clarkson Research Services Limited both presenting their view on the future trends in the Maritime Industry. More specifically the discussion centered on how changes in manufacturing might reduce the need for transportation and the implications in shipping of fuel becoming more expensive than the ship itself.
The two presentations were concluded with a Q&A session with Torben Pedersen, Professor and Academic Director at the Competitiveness Platform as discussant.
The Global Maritime Trends event was hosted by CBS Maritime and The CBS BiS Competitiveness Platform.
