What makes winners in Shipping

The German maritime cluster has to some extent operated in a survival mode for the last 10 years, constantly fighting off the challenges that persisted from the height of the cycle. However, a number of key players of the German maritime cluster emerged as winners and have positioned themselves as leading players in the global shipping industry. So, what makes todays and future winners in shipping? Knowhow, consolidation, innovation, embracing new technology but also leadership and trust from all stakeholders? The Capital Link Forum will discuss winning strategies, main challenges ahead and how the German maritime cluster through cooperation and dialogue can produce more Winners.

Germany commands the fifth largest merchant fleet in the world and boasts the second largest container fleet with 14.4% market share by TEU. With 316 companies and 2,140 vessels, German Shipping plays a pivotal role in the European and global supply chain.

The German maritime community has gone through significant change and transformation across the board (shipowning, shipmanagement, finance and more) further accelerated by regulation, technology, market forces and the pandemic.

In view of these figures and changes, it should be exciting to see what the industry leaders come up with in their panels and discussions at this year’s Capital Link German Maritime Forum.
