10.10 SESSION 6: TANKER INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP AND TANKER SAFETY MANAGEMENT 

PANEL DISCUSSION: Tanker owners and shipmanagers often cite leadership at sea and ashore as their number one challenge. The STCW Manila Amendments and Elements I and 2 of TMSA 3 are well-intentioned (and inextricably linked with Elements 3, 7 and 8), but have they delivered a cultural shift in leadership behaviours that will actually avoid future accidents?

12.00 SESSION 7 PART I: WHAT MAKES FOR AN EFFICIENT TANKER FLEET?
A look at the technology driving fleet efficiency.

12.50 SESSION 7 PART II : WHAT MAKES FOR AN EFFICIENT TANKER FLEET?
How efficient is your fleet management organisation? Do you get value for money? Do your superintendents cost you more but manage more ships than your competitors’ superintendents? This session will look at staff-to-vessel ratios, regional salary trends since the September 2008 crash, future fleet management workforce planning and the impact of crew demographics on succession planning.

BONUS EVENT 

15.40 DEBATE : Is it time for the tanker industry to man up?
This will take the form of a parliamentary debate with opposing sides debating the motion: Is it time for the tanker industry to man up?

The debate will draw on / take inspiration from BIMCO-ICS Manpower Reports, widely regarded as the most comprehensive assessment of global supply of and demand for seafarers. The 2015 Report built on updates conducted in 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010. This ongoing intensive study has two main purposes: to describe the current worldwide supply and demand situation for seafarers; and to make predictions about the likely position in 5-10 years’ time, both designed to help the industry anticipate developments and take appropriate action.

In anticipation of the next update to the report, this session will review the predictions made in the 2015 report and gather audience input with a view to providing BIMCO and the International Chamber of Shipping with feedback and suggestions based upon the real-life experiences of tanker owners and operators.

16.10 Concluding remarks and close
