Capital Link German Maritime Digital Forum on Jan. 28

NEW YORK – Capital Link’s Annual German Maritime Forum will take place on Thursday, January 28, 12-6:05 PM (Central European Time). The forum, titled German Shipping – Prospects in a Fast-Changing World, is digital this year and is held in partnership with DNV GL and with the support of the German Shipowners’ Association (VDR).

Germany commands the fifth largest merchant fleet in the world and boasts the second largest container fleet with 14.4% market share by TEU. With 316 companies and 2,140 vessels, German Shipping plays a pivotal role in the European and global supply chain. The German maritime community has gone through significant change and transformation across the board (ship owning, ship management, finance and more) further accelerated by regulation, technology, market forces and the pandemic.

The forum will feature German industry leaders on the various panels sharing their insight on issues specific to the German Maritime Community/Cluster and also on critical global industry topics. The digital nature of the event opens it to a global audience and makes this approach highly relevant and effective.

Registration is complimentary.

Among the topics to be discussed are: The German Maritime Cluster – Past – Present – Future, Addressing the Global Logistics & Supply Chain Challenge, German Ship management – What's Next, Navigating through Industry Transformation, and the Evolution of German Bank Ship Finance.
