An industry in transformation

shippingThe shipping industry has been facing dramatic changes in recent years. While demand for transportation services remains strong, the deregulated marketplace is forcing individual companies to compete harder for existing and new customers. As cost pressures and service demands escalate, shippers and carriers are strategically collaborating to share resources and information while also realising economies of scale. Business cycles are becoming shorter so all players have to be quick to respond to market forces and continually anticipate change.

The ability to offer top quality professional services to the shipping industry requires knowledge, extensive experience and skill in a variety of functional and technical areas. Deloitte in Greece provides an optimal balance between local resources and international expertise of our global organization. 

Understanding the needs, expectations and business challenges of the shipping industry is paramount to ensuring that we provide high quality and cost effective services to our clients.
