BSM Highlights – January 2022

Dear Readers,

The new year has quickly picked up speed, and well-known topics continue to occupy our thinking and doing. Schulte Group CEO Ian Beveridge gives an outlook on the concerns that will challenge not only us, but the entire maritime industry in 2022 and beyond. The major global trends of digitalisation and sustainability – and in particular the reduction of climate-damaging emissions – are given special attention in the current issue of BSM Highlights. In addition, we especially focus on our crew management and the development of new solutions to counter the increasing shortage of skilled sea staff.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and look forward to receiving your thematic suggestions here.
