Bigger ships, smaller crews, and faster turn around times in port have ensured that goods can be delivered more quickly and cheaply than ever before. But what does this mean for the seafarers onboard?

On the one-year anniversary of the Ever Given getting stuck in the Suez Canal, we took a look at the history of the container ship and the rise of the Ultra-Large Container Vessel. We explored what impact the modernisation of the shipping industry has had on seafarers around the world.

Our panel of expertsed discuss how shipping has changed in the last century. The impact this is having on seafarers today, and the important role Stella Maris has in supporting them.
