Marlow Navigation at Shipping Forum in Cyprus

Marlow Navigation participated at the Capital Link Cyprus Shipping Forum, held in Limassol yesterday.

Under the Auspices of Cyprus’ Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works, the event highlighted the competitive positioning and advantages of Cyprus as an industry location, such as its significant role as a maritime, energy and logistics hub, as well as an investment and business destination.

The forum featured many major international speakers and delegates, and local leaders in an exchange of ideas on critical industry topics. It discussed the developments and trends in the major shipping, financial and capital markets, as well as issues pertaining to geopolitical and regulatory developments, technical and commercial fleet management.

Joint Managing Director, Marlow Navigation, Jan Meyering was a panellist during the crewing discussion ‘Good people pay off - Crewing strategies and staff development’, moderated by Secretary General, InterManager, Capt. Kuba Szymanski.

“No doubt, investing in good people in shipping pays off. People are important and ships need good, qualified, and motivated seafarers to operate well and assure a prosperous voyage,” said Meyering. “On our part, they need to be provided with the right support, such as the proper tools and be adequately trained to be able to conduct their work in a safe and competent manner. At the same time enhancing their attitude, motivation and loyalty to the company.”

“This is especially important in our industry, where quality and safety, as well as operational efficiency is paramount,” he added.

Other main panel discussions/topics covered during the event included a review of the global commodity, energy and shipping markets - Sector review, analysis and outlook; Optimizing Technical Fleet Management; Managing Risks – Cybersecurity; Managing Risks - Foreign Corruption Practices Act; Access to Capital as a Competitive Advantage - Bank Finance, Capital Markets, Private Equity & Alternative Financing; Optimizing Insurance & Reinsurance - Trends & Developments; and Restructuring as a Business & Investment Opportunity.
