Our clients include major shipping and maritime stakeholders – owners, managers, connectivity suppliers and network operators, high-tech start-ups, class societies, multiple governments, NGOs and non-profits, charities, banks, regulators and investors.

A combination of knowledge, strong relationships and unparalleled market insight contribute to a rolling programme of in-depth, high-quality shipping and maritime market research which regularly produces ground-breaking studies and results against which the industry benchmarks itself.

This research is provided freely to the industry helping to address gaps in understanding, identify trends and quantify risks and opportunities for shipping and maritime companies, seafarers and stakeholders, and those seeking to enter or evaluate the sector.

In addition to these published studies we work with individual clients to deliver market, product, customer and brand research reports enabling organisations to base their incremental and more disruptive innovation strategies on concrete data and knowledge.

We also work with boards, executive management teams, policymakers regulators and governments to deliver robust strategic foresight advice and reporting. Bringing together our exceptionally broad knowledge of the global megatrends, technologies and mindsets driving the next phase of globalisation, and in-depth understanding of the shipping and maritime industry we identify key future trends and interdependencies and deliver actionable foresight around where discontinuity and disruptive change needs to be met with innovation and new policy approaches.
