Maritime UK is the umbrella body for the maritime sector, bringing together the shipping, ports, services, engineering, and leisure marine industries. Our purpose is to champion and enable a thriving maritime sector.
Supporting over 1 million jobs and adding £46.1bn to our economy, maritime is responsible for facilitating 95% of UK global trade, worth over £500bn per year. The UK maritime workforce is 42% more productive than the average UK worker.
Maritime makes a greater contribution to the UK economy than both rail and air combined.
