Today we celebrate world maritime day, and the theme for this year is “Connecting Ships, Ports and People“
At the heart of Tuscor Lloyds is the knowledge that our industry is the backbone of world trade, and that without people that trade would not be possible.
The theme for 2017 was chosen to provide an opportunity to focus on the many diverse actors involved in the shipping and logistics areas. The theme enables us to shine a spotlight on the existing cooperation between ports and ships to maintain and enhance a safe, secure and efficient maritime transportation system.
The World Maritime Day themes for 2016 and 2017 are complementary and may be seen as a response to United Nations post-2015 sustainable development agenda and, in particular, the Sustainable Development Goals. For 2016, the theme was “Shipping: indispensable to the world” – chosen to focus on the critical link between shipping and the everyday lives of people all over the planet and to raise awareness of the role of IMO as the global regulatory body for international shipping.
At Tuscor Lloyds we have always placed the utmost importance in interacting with our community that extends far into the realms of navigation, with customers in oil and gas, construction, mining, energy and renewables, all of whom depend on us to transport their materials throughout the world.
The World Maritime Day Parallel Event will be held in Panama (1-3 October 2017).
