Join us for the opening webinar session of our global lecture series where we will shine the spotlight on impending IMO regulations set to sweep across commercial maritime markets. Bringing bitesize analysis of the IMOs road to lower emissions, our experts will lay down the basics of what this will mean for commercial markets including impacts on CP clauses and rates as well as how the industry can achieve this monumental task using new tech.
