The Maritime Standard (TMS), which is based in Dubai, publishes a regular e-newsletter aimed specifically at the shipping and maritime community. It is delivered fortnightly, on the 1st and 15th of every month, and provides accurate, up-to-date news about the market. Over the past few years the publication has built up the largest readership of any shipping-related online newsletter in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. It is also gaining popularity in other major shipping hubs, including Oslo, Hamburg, Singapore, London and Greece.

The newsletter includes news and analysis from the shipping and ports industries and related sectors in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. Topics that are covered include tanker shipping, container operations, dry and liquid bulk trades, ro-ro, and cruise shipping. In addition, there is up to date information about regional terminal operations; port development; classification; ship repair and conversion; shipbuilding; ship agency; finance and insurance; maritime law; and transportation & logistics. The newsletter, which celebrated the publication of its 100th edition in 2018, regularly carries exclusives, analysis and interviews with top executives, and there are plans to include a special section on recent and forthcoming events, the industry’s ‘movers and shakers’ and other personality-led news.

TMS publishes the very successful TMS UAE Yearbook. The third volume covering 2018/19 was launched in July last year and the 2019/20 edition is all set to be unveiled in June 2019. Around 5000 copies are printed and distributed worldwide and have a high profile at partner maritime events, such as Posidonia, SMM, Norshipping, Dubai International Boat Show, Offshore Arabia and many more. The UAE’s Federal Transport Authority also takes the Yearbook with them to the events that they take part in and host over the year, as well as having copies on display at its headquarter in Abu Dhabi.

Covering key developments across the country’s maritime sector, the annual publication aims to publicise the UAE’s achievements both locally and internationally, through in-depth articles, researched first hand. These cover all the major sectors of the shipping, ports and maritime industry in the UAE. The articles, on terminals, shipping companies, shipyards, maritime law firms, classification, regulators and inland transport firms, among others, have been well received by the industry as a year-round reference point. The Maritime Standard UAE Yearbook is a must-read publication for everyone interested in UAE maritime issues.
