Back to News

The concierge service provides a one-stop shop to help maritime businesses interact with government departments.

As part of the package of reforms to expand the UK maritime economy, the UK government has set up a concierge service for shipping and associated sub-sectors to provide a one-stop shop for businesses wishing to interact with various government departments.

What the service will provide

The main aims of the concierge service will be to:

  • promote the UK maritime offer from a government perspective, continually highlighting the benefits of trading in the UK
  • provide strategic account relationships with government department experts, ship owners, operators, managers and maritime sub-sector leaders
  • facilitate an accessible link between maritime industry and government
  • identify barriers to entry to the UK, influencing policy leads, as appropriate, to build better policy informed by commercial, social and environmental needs
  • help propel UK maritime prosperity to create jobs and increase the maritime sector
  • provide UK maritime sector with a government centre of expertise, continuously monitoring international competition and recommending adjustments to the UK’s offer

Who we are

The team will support businesses looking to invest in the UK and will develop comprehensive data and market insights to support policy decisions through ongoing dialogue with industry stakeholders.
