Shipping & Ports

Helping international shipping companies charter the right course

The international shipping industry is an undisputed, major contributor to global transportation and logistics that experiences significant volatility in vessel values, freight rates and shareholder returns. As a highly cyclical industry it is impacted by changes in the international economic and political environment. Increasing regulation, volatility in financial markets, risk of piracy, technological breakthroughs and environmental concerns have added to a very challenging business environment that puts even experienced shipping executives to the test.
