What we do

Maritime UK brings together the shipping, ports and maritime business services sectors in the UK to speak with a single voice on key strategic and practical issues of joint interest. Its intention is to create “joined-up” industry positions between these sectors so that the maritime message can be heard clearly and with greater weight by legislators and other audiences.

Maritime UK represents a substantial part of the British economy:

  • The Maritime UK sectors contribute a total of around £22.2 billion to UK GDP.
  • Maritime UK sectors support 489,400 jobs and contribute £6.5bn in tax revenues
