Are we seeing the end of the family-run shipowner?

As some push to commoditise the industry, this graph highlights the considerable fragmentation of ownership and companies responsible for compliance. Using the drop-down options you can view fleet size by beneficial owner or DOC company, and sort by ship type, size & age.

Whilst performance and safety are dependent upon more than just scale of operations, it is interesting to note that many small companies (with 1, 2 or 3 vessels) and a few big players dominate the landscape.

Subscribers to RightShip Qi can access, at a vessel level, data insights relating to beneficial owners & DOC companies; and so understand how management experience may influence the safety of a vessel or the risk associated with a particular voyage.
