Anastasios Papagiannopoulos, CEO of Common Progress, has been elected as the new president of international shipping association BIMCO, and has immediately identified the digitalisation of the shipping industry as one of the major themes for his two-year term.
BIMCO and a group of fellow shipping organisations have launched a set of guidelines which aim to help global shipping prevent cyber incidents on board vessels, which they believe could create major safety, environmental and commercial issues for the industry.
BIMCO has announced that it has taken ownership of the Shipping KPI System previously led by InterManager, which is used to compare ships’ efficiency against the performance of the industry and sector averages.
The European Parliament has approved draft EU rules requiring ship owners using EU ports to monitor and report CO2 emissions each year.
BIMCO, the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), Intercargo and INTERTANKO have announced that they are together developing standards and guidelines to address the major cyber security issues faced by the shipping industry.
Preliminary results from the 2015 BIMCO/ICS Manpower Report indicate that internet access at sea is improving, contributing to improved overall welfare for the commercial maritime workforce.
