Seafarers Books & Maritime Publications
’Maritime matters’ By Esben Poulsson
As a sequel to Esben Poulsson’s A life in shipping, Maritime matters covers the period from September 2018 to the present day.
It has been an eventful four years that have included the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Both have had a highly disruptive effect on shipping: the former on the ability of seafarers to enter ports, let alone effect crew change, which inevitably contributed to an interruption of supply chains; and the latter on the movement of goods around the Black Sea, badly affecting the transportation and price of grain, sunflower oil and other goods that Ukraine supplies so much of to the rest of the world.
There are other ongoing matters addressed by Poulsson, ranging from ship emissions to the profile of the shipping industry. With his experience working in both private companies and major international associations – such as the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) – Poulsson is well-placed to make pertinent observations on the state of the maritime industry and its future priorities. The maritime industry does, indeed, matter a great deal and the world needs to recognise it.
You can purchase your copy via Paypal for £50.00 GBP, including postage.
