24/7 service launched to support maritime businesses enter the UK

A new service has been launched in a bid to boost the UK’s maritime industry.

The new 24/7 worldwide service has been launched at the start of London International Shipping Week.

The new team will be responsible for boosting the UK’s maritime sector by offering a proactive service to any maritime business that needs assistance with navigating government departments.

Maritime Minister Robert Courts commented: “The UK is the world’s best place to do maritime business.

“We’re investing in new technologies, committed to decarbonisation, and home to the world centre of ship management and maritime financial and legal services.

“Our new UK Shipping Concierge service will help the maritime sector unlock more opportunities here in the UK by providing a one-stop-shop of advice, support, and guidance.

Strategic lead for the UK Shipping Concierge Mark Seastron added: “It really is an exciting service to be launching in LISW, one we are proud to be shouting about.

“The aim is to make it easier for shipping companies to gain access to the UK and it’s something those shipping operators have been asking about for a long time. It’s going to revolutionise what we offer as a maritime nation.”
