Why does the maritime industry have a skills shortage? The increasing need for seafarers with tech skills? A general disinterest in seafaring as a job? The lack of women entering the sector? The reasons are debatable but it’s clear the ratio of men to women in shipping is seriously disproportionate.
Martide wish to offer our sincere congratulations to Nordic Hamburg who, in conjunction with Shell LNG, after five years of painstaking preparatory work, reached a huge milestone in the industry this week: executing the world’s very first simultaneous LNG bunkering during container cargo operations.
