THANK YOU
FOR ENTRUSTING YOUR SHIPS TO GL!
The GL-classed eet has exceeded the 100 million GT mark. Your loyalty has contributed to thisshared achievement. We look forward to applying this formula for success with you in the future.
 
A SPECIAL JUBILEE
distinguishes this issue of
nonstop
for Germanischer Lloyd:our enterprise, which can look back at a proud history spanning 144 years as aclassication society, has for the very rst time passed the 100-million GT markfor classied tonnage. More than 7,200 ships now operate with “Class GL”.The vessel to break the magical boundary was the 300-metre container car-rier “Santa Rosa”, built by the South Korean yard Daewoo and owned by theshipping company Hamburg Süd (page 12). It comes as no surprise that this isa containership. First of all, the success story of container shipping as the pace-maker for globalisation continues (page 18). Added to that, GL is the worldleader in this segment, with customers like the Chinese shipping companyCOSCO (page 38) and a market share of over 40 per cent.
GL ALSO LEADS
in its offering for efciency enhancement. Optimisation of thehull shape, improvements in engine control, software-supported operationsand voyage management – concentrating on all the technical measures isimportant in order to even come close to achieving the ambitious CO
2
 reduction targets as shown in a topical article on GLs research (see “Extra”,page 63). And GL experts know where this journey is taking us: for the rsttime, they outline the concept for an emission-free containership (page 72).
SAFER, SMARTER, GREENER:
GLs philosophy is also becoming more and moreimportant for other segments of shipping – it applies to standards for lifeboatson cruise liners (page 56), to technical support for yacht building (page 46) andto innovative methods of underwater welding (page 76). In bodies such as theHellas Committee (page 42), GL enters into an intensive dialogue on economicand technical matters with its customers – and masters the challenges of thefuture together with them. Closeness to the customer: this goal is pursued,not only at the over 200 locations of GL worldwide but also through the newmanagement structure of the maritime business segment (page 86), making useven more efcient – to your benet.We look forward to reaching the next milestone with you!Yours sincerely,Erik van der NoordaaChairman of the Executive Board, Germanischer Lloyd SE
