As the global shipping industry dedicates today to celebrate the pillars of the global supply chain, our seafarers, MariApps joins in to say a resounding THANK YOU!
Seafarers, our keyworkers, have personified resilience and perseverance in these unprecedented times, and we are so grateful for their tenacity. Being at the core of the shipping and cruise industry and its future, MariApps constantly takes efforts to create products that caters to the human element of shipping and constantly strives to help increase the safety and efficiency of our seafarers.
“The World Maritime Theme for 2021, “Seafarers: at the core of shipping’s future” seeks to increase the visibility of seafarers by drawing attention to the invaluable role they play now and will continue to play in the future.
