With the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing nature in the supply chain ecosystem, the maritime industry knows that it cannot be business as usual. In this issue, we recap the key events at Singapore Maritime Week 2021, where leaders and stakeholders convened to talk about how we can converge to tackle the issues of manpower, climate change and the future of shipping. We also cover Alpha Ori Technologies' suite of digital solutions to tackle decarbonisation by harnessing data effectively. Last, we interview three key leaders in maritime, Jens Drewes, Prof Lynn Loo and Yee Yang Chien and ask them about their plans to make shipping more efficient, cleaner and safer for all.

To this end, the Feature article showcases MPA’s multi-pronged digitalisation approach while Port & Starboard highlights Portcast’s software, which uses machine-learning algorithms to predict vessel utilisation dynamically. Also read about the American Bureau of Shipping, which has established the ABS Global Simulation Center, the society’s global Center of Excellence for Modelling and Simulation.
