Published in association with Interferry, the Ferry Business section of the Autumn/Winter 2018 issue of International Cruise & Ferry Review is packed with executive interviews.

Ferry Business opens with a commentary from Interferry CEO Mike Corrigan who explains how the trade association is playing a key role in building the future of the global ferry sector. Next up is an interview with Interferry chairman Mike Grainger, who talks about the challenges and opportunities facing the ferry industry. Johan Roos, the association’s director of regulatory affairs, also provides thought leadership on climate change and a lower carbon future. Plus, Ultramar CEO and Interferry president German Orozco tells us how hosting the Interferry 2018 conference will help to boost Mexico’s ferry industry.

We also hear about ship safety in Asia from Archipelago Philippines Fast Ferry Corporation’s Mary Ann Pastrana, while Christophe Mathieu discusses Brittany Ferries success and Paul Luxon explains how he plans to take Condor Ferries forward. Other highlights include exclusive interviews with P&O Ferries’ Henrik Pedersen, Owen Sound Transportation Company’s Susan Schrempf and Chao Phraya Express Boat Co’s Supapan Pichaironarongsongkram.

In addition, we hear how Austal, Cemre Shipyard, Damen and Spear Green Design are helping ferry operators to design and build their ferries.

Closing Ferry Business, William MacLachlan from international law firm HFW offers a legal perspective on recycling ferries, and industry expert Michael Grey examines why ferry services are often a preferable alternative to fixed transport links.
