“The industry’s experiencing an astonishing transition at the moment. We are going through an unprecedented consolidation, especially in container shipping, and this is driven by ecommerce like Alibaba and Amazon. Largely this is a result of Covid, which drove an anomalous fluctuation of demand. It is very exciting but having to adapt as an industry is remarkable.
“The Blue MBA has enabled me to deal with this shifting landscape more pragmatically, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to see ahead or see what is coming so effectively. It’s like driving down the road at 200km per hour and being able to brake at the right time, it gives you this advanced understanding that is very valuable. Time is money in our business and being able to adjust to change is a matter of survival.”
