ISSUE 72 | September 2020

As industries around the world enter Covid-19 recovery mode, we take a closer look at Maritime UK’s Sector Recovery plan to see where maritime needs to right the ship. Additionally, we ask whether the US' Jones Act should be celebrated or scrapped after its 100th anniversary in June.

We also explore two UK-based projects: one investigating how ‘map-matching’ navigation systems could help pinpoint vessel locations, and the other trialling an innovative hull lubrication method to increase fuel efficiency. Furthermore, we explore autonomous shipping from a port security perspective, after DP World subsidiary World Security launched its first-ever autonomous surveillance boat at UAE ports.

Finally, we investigate Japan’s plans to create a zero-emission ‘eco-ship’ by 2028, and investigate key points raised in the US Coast Guard's new global guidance on tackling deceptive shipping practices.
