In its annual Safety and Shipping Review released this week, Allianz provided a statistics review of shipping incidents by year, by vessel type, by cause and by region, for the last decade (2009-2018). The report revealed that total shipping losses over 100GT have fallen significantly to 46, representing the lowest total this century.
Allianz issued its Risk Barometer 2019 listing the top business risks for this year. For the 2019 edition, Allianz surveyed more than 2,415 risk experts from 86 countries about the perils that worry them most. The survey identified cyber, neck-and-neck with business interruption, at the top of the Allianz Risk Barometer for the first time.
In its recently-published Shipping and Safety Review, Allianz cites a top-10 list of the largest ships lost throughout 2017, noting that half of the cases involved bulk carriers. The highlights of the year were the sinking of the two bulk carriers, ‘Stellar Daisy’ and ‘Emerald Star’, which caused death of a total of 33 seafarers.
