More challenges than before Covid 19

International ferry and ro-ro shipping managed the pandemic times well. Some operators had to lay off a lot of staff and shut down lines.
Many shipping companies are now faced with the challenge of finding new staff. No matter to whom we talked in the industry and also with
customers in logistics, there is a lack of employees everywhere. We have feeling that the labour market in Europe has been swept clean. But
the challenges in the labour market are yet to come. In the next few years, many employees in Europe from the baby boomer era will retire
and there will not be enough qualified personnel to follow.
Another burden on the industry is rising inflation and rising energy costs, partly influenced by the Ukraine conflict. The first signs that
holidaymakers
are restricting their budgets are becoming apparent.
Nevertheless, the greatest challenge facing the entire shipping industry is the reduction of Co2 emissions. The industry does not yet have the
best solution and in our discussions with ship-owners and ports there are different paths that are followed. We will show you another one
in this issue and ideas about what other solutions there are besides electric propulsion systems and LNG. We remain optimistic, because the
European ferry and RoRo shipping gets more and more cargo because there are fewer and fewer truck drivers. The logistic chain will continue
to grow pushed by the digitized world.

ROPAX WORKSHOP

The smart way of funding

With this workshop we will provide European executives with necessary insight into smart financing, primarily co-financing in the form of funding/ grant of all kind of development and/ or investment projects. We will lift the veil from the variety of potential funding items and sources, generate a clear understanding of mechanisms and tools and pave the way ahead for a more efficient financing strategy.

Autumn 2022

Due to Covid 19 the event will take place as a TEAMS Meeting online!
