Seatrade and Ferry Management Services (FMS), leading information providers in the overlapping cruise and ferry sectors, announced a partnership for the enhancement and development of an on-line service for the global ferry industry - ferrynews.com. FMS, a marine consultancy specialising in the sourcing, design, management and operation of conventional and fast ferries, brings together a unique combination of complementary skills and expertise from the passenger, freight and ports sector of the marine industry.
Seatrade, publishers of the Seatrade Cruise Review, have been bringing shipping people together for over 30 years through events and publications. Seatrade is involved in major global cruise events in Miami, Genoa, Hamburg and Singapore. 'The new partnership builds a platform for exciting developments and services for readers of both partners' publications,' says Mary Bond, editor of Seatrade Cruise Review and cruise-community.com
'I am delighted with this new partnership which provides endless possibilities for the future development and success of a ferry publication which has become a market leader in less than 12 months. Seatrade are the perfect professional partners for ferrynews.com, a unique ferry industry commentary which now exceeds 40,000 words per month' says FMS director Bill Moses, who has over 30 years experience in the ferry and port sectors including key executive positions in Olau Line, Sealink, Hoverspeed and Sally UK Holdings.
