The Maritime Standard Newsletter

Headquartered in Dubai, The Maritime Standard (TMS) produces a fortnightly e-newsletter which is aimed at business leaders in the shipping, ports, transportation, and logistics sectors, as well as the wider maritime technology and services communities. It is delivered regularly on the 1st and 15th of every month, and offers an insightful, clearly written news digest focusing on developments in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent primarily. Over the course of more than 225 editions, the publication has built up the largest readership of any shipping-related online newsletter in the region. It has also raised its profile in other major shipping hubs, such as Oslo, Hamburg, Singapore, London, and Greece, where it has a growing number of readers.

Topics that are regularly covered in The Maritime Standard include ports and terminals, tanker shipping, container operations, dry and liquid bulk trades, ro-ro, and cruise shipping. In addition, readers can find up to date information about ship repair and shipbuilding; ship agency; finance and insurance; maritime law; and transportation & logistics. The newsletter, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2023, carries exclusives, analysis, and interviews with top executives to add value to the publication.


The Maritime Standard UAE Yearbook

Every year The Maritime Standard publishes the highly regarded and widely praised The Maritime Standard UAE Yearbook. The eighth volume covering 2023/2024 was published in Summer 2023 and around 10,000 copies were printed and distributed worldwide, generating a high profile for the UAE maritime sector on a global basis. The ninth edition in this series for 2024/25 is set to be published in the Spring of 2024 and will once again cover all the latest developments and trends affecting the UAE’s ports, shipping and shipyard businesses, as well as other maritime sectors, such as classification, ship agency, logistics, maritime law, insurance, IT, security and financial services. Benefitting from a global distribution, and a high profile, the 2024/25 edition will feature a series of in-depth and analytical articles and company profiles designed to provide a well-rounded and informed assessment of the current position of the UAE’s fast-growing maritime sector and its prospects for the future.

Included in the UAE Yearbook will be information about investments in shipping, port and maritime related infrastructure and equipment, and the development of new technology, by companies based or active in the country. Other key themes will include how the sector is helping achieve ambitious climate change targets, building on the positive outcomes of the COP 28 Conference in Dubai in 2023, as well as the rapid pace of digitalisation, including the use of AI and other tools.

On top of using TMS’ well-established databases, the distribution networks for the Yearbook include most of the major maritime conferences and exhibitions, such as Posidonia, Norshipping and SMM, while a number of leading organisations and businesses display them at their headquarters and on their stands at such events.
