In March, US President Donald Trump placed a 25% tariff on steel imports and a 10% on aluminium imports from China. While some have argued that the impact on maritime may be ‘minimal’, the tariffs could lead to a trade war between the two nations. We analyse the potential impact of a US-China trade war on shipping.

We also take a closer look at the Mayflower autonomous ship ahead of its maiden voyage, discuss the development of Nigeria’s shipping sector, and explore Sweden’s efforts to decarbonise maritime transport and ask what challenges remain before zero-carbon shipping can be achieved.

Finally, we list the most useful apps for seafarers, and consider the issue of cyber incidents in the maritime industry and ask what can be done to raise awareness among regulators, policy makers and insurers.
