Why you must target the Greek market
Being the largest ship owning nation, Greek shipowners own 20.67% of global tonnage and 54% of the European Union (EU)-controlled tonnage.
Between 2007 and 2019, Greek shipowners have more than doubled the carrying capacity of their fleet, while they control:
33% of the world tanker fleet,
15% of the world chemical and products tankers,
16% of the global LNG / LPG fleet,
22% of the world bulk carriers,
9% of the world’s container vessels.
Today Greeks control over 5.000 vessels.
Based on statistics by VesselsValue, in 2019 the value of the Greek fleet exceeded $100 billion. that’s the highest among all nations worldwide.
Partnering with the Greek shipping community is one of the most efficient and promising ways for a new investor to enter the sea transport market, on a worldwide scale. Greek shipowners have been investing heavily in new, efficient ships, with the average age of the Greek-owned fleet being lower than the average age of the world fleet.

Why is digital important for the Maritime Industry?
In shipping, digitalization and the use of data has had a huge impact. Ships have become sophisticated sensor hubs and data generators, producing and transmitting information from anywhere, often in real-time. These digital information flows are driving the automation of processes and functions, and they have a positive impact on safety, commercial, and environmental performance.
Combining data streams from multiple sources allows the maritime industry to make better-informed decisions more quickly, creating more efficient and responsive organizations.
New cloud-based technologies such as big data platforms and digital twin technologies are starting to have a dramatic effect on how the industry manages information and how vessels and their components are designed, built, and tested.
In the context of maritime and shipping, we see increasing consumer demands resulting in greater pressure on supply chain stakeholders. In order to optimize supply chains and adapt to these new demands, decision-makers need to be able to access reliable data in real-time and apply that information in a practical way. This creates opportunities but also challenges in terms of how to extract high value. When data is managed and applied in the right way, it can also drive other benefits for the industry, such as helping to improve sustainability, safety, logistics efficiencies and supply chain transparency.
