If the stock market undervalues an industry like shipping for too long, fewer large companies do IPOs and more large-cap companies that are already public go private.

Grab a pencil and draw in the lines of all the proposed green shipping corridors around the globe, and readers will notice that the crossroads of world trade – Singapore – lies at the nexus of many of these new fuel routes. This green preemptive positioning is not by accident – the canny folk at the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore have ensured – absent of being able to produce the alternate fuels themselves on home soil – that Singapore, the world’s largest bunkering hub, will still be very much at the centre of shipping’s green transition with new fuel links acting as petri-dishes between the Lion Republic and the US, Europe and Australia among others.
