Seafarers brought us… our entire business!

Today we mark the day of the many hard working & skilled people that represent the most valuable and critical “asset” for the entire maritime industry. Without our colleagues at sea, and their unique competence, neither of us (nor the global trade) could utilize the most environmental friendly transportation alternatives. Twisting a well known quote to honour you today, my opinion is this; Without the seafarers, half the world would starve and the other half would freeze. Thank you for great efforts at sea, whether on a ship or rig. Without you, world trade as we know it would not exist. 

An extra warm thought goes to the crew members around the world who are either stuck on an abandoned ship in arrest, or held captive by pirates. I strongly urge the industry to ensure all possible efforts being made in order to get these back home safe and sound.
