"The publications on those topics have been informative and helpful in understanding current trends and issues.”

Capt. W R. Daniels. VP, Mitsui O.S.K. Bulk Shipping

The ShipInsight Guides and Reports have in a very short time become established around the world as a key tool for decision makers and purchasers within ship operation and shipowning organisations.

The guides are limited to a single topic or area of interest and provide a summary of regulation affecting that area followed by practical information on implementation and technology.

In response to numerous requests from readers, ShipInsight also publish a new series of reports that deal with particular topics of current interest.

These reports will tackle subjects in an even more in-depth manner than the ShipInsight guides but will be more focussed on a single subject or area. Because shipping is a fast moving business, developments can sometimes move faster and outpace regulation leading to confusion and indecision.

In-Depth Guide to Power and Propulsion

In-Depth Guide to Environmental Technology
Most aspects of environmental protection are not likely to give any bene t to operators and will in fact result in extra costs for them to absorb.
