135 years of Fairplay

Much has changed in the world of shipping and publishing since 1883, when Fairplay was founded. Globalisation and the emergence of new powerhouse economies have redrawn trade patterns, while digitalisation has revolutionised communications, ship operations, and maritime technology. Life has become faster in shipping, and the drive for scale, share, and efficiency dominates. But strong relationships have always been the centrepiece of the maritime industry, and as Fairplay marks its 135th anniversary, our commitment to sounding out shipowners and sharing their views is still at the heart of what we do.
