The following two speakers will share their knowledge with us:
Mr Jorne Langelaan, Dutch Captain
For thousands of years the sailing vessel was the only, and emission free, option for long distance shipping. In the 19th century that all changed when burning fossil fuels replaced the wind as source of energy. This is the story of shipping through the ages, and offers a view on how to make global logistics, sustainable again.
Ms Luisa Rodriguez, Transport Section of UNCTAD
Presentation of latest Review of Maritime Transport: The Review of Mari-time Transport is an UNCTAD flagship publication, published annually since 1968. The Review of Maritime Transport provides an analysis of structural and cyclical changes affecting seaborne trade, ports and shipping, as well as an extensive collection of statistical information. Ms. Rodriguez will talk about more particularly data pertaining to port con-nectivity, port calls and port turn-around times and latest statistic up-dates for fleet, liner shipping connectivity –with a special emphasis on Switzerland statistics and references to IMO 2020.
