TMS Awards to recognise success in difficult times

10th October 2016, Dubai: The year 2016 will not go down as one of the best in the shipping industry’s history, with economic factors and overcapacity producing challenging times for many sectors. But despite the difficulties, companies have continued to excel and innovate and The Maritime Standard Awards 2016 will rightly recognise these positive achievements in an unrivalled occasion on October 24th at the Atlantis, the Palm Dubai.
