I guess most of us will be pleased to see the end of 2020. However there must certainly be widespread consternation about 2021 as to whether it will be more of the same, a return to normal or the advent of a "new" normal. A transition of some sort is inevitable.
There was also anxiety, but on a different scale, in the shipping world, fifty years ago as containers were making a significant impact on how cargo was transported. Hard as it is to believe today, Maersk Lines, now the world's largest container operator, was slow to make a commitment to containers. Much of its trade was with Asia where things were still done in the traditional way. Therefore Maersk was still building conventional cargo ships.
Shipfax wishes all its readers a successful transition into 2021 and a safe and prosperous new year.
