In the wake of the devastating explosion in Beirut, Lebanon in August, we look back at the key events on the timeline leading up to the disaster at the Port of Beirut and ask whether now may be a good time for a reassessment of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Dangerous Goods Code.

We also explore how Covid-19 has raised awareness of the importance of assessing seafarers’ mental health, and whether it could also speed up the adoption of more digital tools in the freight shipping sector.

We take a closer look at why the Singapore Straight has become a hotspot for piracy, inspect the world’s first fully electric tugboat, and highlight key points from the IMO’s new ‘Just in Time Arrival Guide’.

Finally, we find out what comes next after the European Parliament’s Environment Committee agreed to include carbon emissions from the maritime sector in its Emissions Trading System.
