German ship owners have enjoyed a remarkable comeback over the last 1 1/2 years on the back of strong shipping markets, in particular in the Container and MPP sector, where German owners are holding a leading market position. Since the beginning of 2021, German owners have reportedly sold a remarkable 167 container ships and have cashed in more than $2.2bn. In contrast, German owners have been cautious in replacing their ageing fleet so far and have ordered only 54 container ships. Structurally the German ship owner scene has changed very little over the last years and is dominated by private tramp owners. So what makes the German tramp owner resilient and how can German tramp owner remain competitive? Our key note speakers represent tramp owners in Germany and will give us their view on the challenges and opportunities for the German tramp owner.
Another recent topic where Deloitte is taking a leading role, is the impact on economies and businesses from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Deloitte will exclusively present scenarios on the potential long term change in trade and impact on supply chains in relation to Russia and the risks and opportunities in relation to shipping for further debate.
After a two year forced break, we would very much like to welcome you to attend our traditional breakfast event as our guest and enjoy a healthy breakfast and freshly brewed coffee together with us and your peers from the shipping industry.
