Editorial staff

Maritime Journal is the only magazine and website dedicated to the European inshore, offshore, coastal zone and short sea commercial maritime industries. It uniquely provides the vital link which places vendors and service providers from across a broad spectrum in contact with purchasing decision makers. Our highly targeted readership of marine managers, senior operations and engineering staff are busy professionals who have little time to study lengthy magazine articles.

Europe’s commercial maritime infrastructure is critical to the social and economic well-being of the Continent. It requires continuous renewal and expansion, a process which generates many billions of Euros in revenue for the product and service suppliers involved. These companies need the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about the changing requirements of and emerging opportunities in this vast marketplace.

In recognition of this, Maritime Journal’s editorial policy is to provide a concise overview of industry news, presenting the latest in products and services in the context of current operational applications. Maritime Journal’s clearly laid out and signposted sections help readers to quickly select the most useful and relevant information for their businesses. Its content and user-friendly style ensure that it is passed on between colleagues and retained for future reference.
