INTERTANKO active in Shanghai

INTERTANKO was present at the 3rd ShippingTech Summit, which ran in parallel with the Tradewinds Shipping Energy China 2009 Conference. INTERTANKO MD Peter Swift chaired a Workshop on a diverse range of issues covering the rebirth of the Brazilian shipbuilding industry, volatility in dry bulk carrier demand and supply, and risk management to cope with fluctuating oil prices.


Swift also spoke in the general industry session on “Energy Transportation - A Primary Sector in the Global Shipping Market”, where he described the essential role of shipping in energy movements, highlighting the safe, environmentally responsible and cost-effective performance of tanker shipping. He also spoke of some of the issues faced today by tanker owners, including their concerns over piracy and the unjustified criminalisation of seafarers, and the challenge of maintaining commitments to safety, quality and training in a market downturn.


A copy of his presentation can be viewed on the website at Intertanko Presentations.
