8th Annual Operational Excellence in Shipping – Best Industry Practices Forum

Tuesday, 30 October 2018

Athens
Capital Link will organize its “8th Annual Operational Excellence in Shipping – Best Industry Practices Forum” on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 in Athens. With a 8-year track record it is the only Forum that showcases Operational Excellence in the Maritime Sector and explores Best Industry Practices across all major areas such as fleet management, technological innovation, crewing, energy efficiency and the environment, safety & security. The Forum provides an interactive platform on the topic of Operational Excellence, Best Industry Practices and Sustainability linking shipping companies, charterers, government and non-government industry associations, classification societies, P&I Clubs, flag registries, technology & service providers and the financial and investment community. We are delighted to see how the industry has embraced this Forum. Last year, Senior Executives from 26 leading shipping companies, 3 major classification societies, as well as charterers, financiers and key industry organizations came together to discuss how the implementation of Best Industry Practices translates into tangible commercial, operational and financial competitive advantages. The extensive shipping company participation in the Forum is key, as ultimately it is the companies that are implementing these Best Industry Practices and the Forum attributes to the Operational Side of the business the attention it deserves.
