Published in association with Interferry, our Ferry Business section of the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Cruise & Ferry Review opens with a commentary from Interferry’s Mike Corrigan, who calls for increased investment in shoreside electricity supply for the ferry industry.

Continuing the theme of sustainability, Shipshape Consulting’s Simon Johnson hosts a roundtable discussion to uncover how high-speed ferry operators plan to reduce emissions and adapt to using new fuels. The panel includes Red Funnel’s Fran Collins, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers’ Sean Collins and Morgan Mooney of Fire Island Ferries and San Juan Clipper.

Next up, we have a selection of interviews covering various key topics in the ferry industry. In our first-ever Ferry Business executive interview Baleària’s Adolfo Utortalks about the state of the Spanish ferry market and the operator’s transition towards net-zero carbon emissions. Corrine Storey then discusses how BC Ferries is ensuring safe operations while meeting the obligations of operating in a pristine environment. Irish Ferries’ Andrew Sheen also details the challenges of operating in the ferry industry post pandemic.

In addition, Strategic Partnerships’ Mary Scott Nabers outlines how federal funding is helping cities, public transportation agencies and other organisations improve ferry services across the USA.

Finally, ferry expert Michael Grey concludes the section by highlighting why ferries are fast becoming a popular form of transport for people who are looking to travel in the wake of the pandemic.
