There is an ever-growing list of actors with a stake in a vessel’s performance management.

At this forum we will look at how these different interests affect one another.
Increased pressure on industry to both reduce costs and evaluate performance has resulted in greater focus on improving vessels' technical and operational efficiency. Rising bunker fuel costs and environmental concerns have elevated this drive towards efficient fleet optimisation even further.
