Moore Stephens on risk perception in shipping
The international shipping accountant Moore Stephens sees little change of the risk perception of the shipping industry, according to its third annual shipping risk survey.
Geographically, demand trends were the number one concern in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, while respondents in Latin America and North America identified competition as posing the highest level of risk.
Respondents to the survey felt that the level of risk factors which impacted their business would remain largely unchanged over the next twelve months, with the exception of ballast water management legislation, cyber security, geopolitics, operating costs and other changes to laws and regulations.
