Pole Star have been in Maritime Technology for 20 years. With offices all over the world, London is their spiritual home – and they are proud sponsors of London International Shipping Week.
“[London is] where the company was formed, and where our HQ is, and operational base is,” says Julian Longson, Managing Director of Pole Star. “London is a global city, shipping is a global business, and to this end Pole Star is fantastically supported by our Hong Kong and Panama hubs along with regional staff and partners across the maritime world.”
Despite many shipping operations moving East, London’s position as a major maritime, finance, insurance, and legal hub remains strong. In fact, Julian believes this long history and wealth of expertise will position London as a hub of knowledge for the foreseeable future.
Pole Star’s contribution to this valuable knowledge base is in its advanced technological developments, and their enthusiasm and passion towards innovation show no signs of abating; quite the opposite, in fact. Julian says Pole Star’s desire is to optimise the maritime ecosystem through continued enhancement of their platform, and the future provision of what he affectionately calls “smart stuff”, relating to predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and blockchain.
Julian says, “We know that everything we’re doing today matters, and we’re passionate about making it count.” He says London International Shipping Week is a great opportunity to connect with industry stakeholders, partners, and others, to share development plans and ideas, and to listen to what the industry wants and needs in relation to the digital solutions that Pole Star can bring.
