Shipping and maritime have always been an essential element of our daily lives, whether we pay attention to it or not. Probably ‘Just-In-Time’ inventory is the logistics management concept most pertinent to shipping, but again, movement of cargoes and trade and exchange of ideas and effectively interaction among cultures were depending on ships sailing since time immemorial. No wonder that shipping and maritime have been often in the news, sometimes more often than we’d care about and sometimes for the wrong reasons, we have to admit.
Here’s a list of articles on shipping, maritime and shipping finance that are pertinent and indicative of the main issues and topics that are of concern to the industry. We are honored and pleased that we have been quoted in most of these articles and raising public awareness of shipping and the importance of shipping in our daily lives, even for those not having much salt in their blood!
