Shipping and Yachting

img_shpThe shipping industry had been facing dramatic changes in recent years. While global 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.
