The men and women who keep the world’s shipping industry afloat are back for more. Join us as we embark on a second series of ‘Mega Shippers’, a returnable observational work-place series following the complex workings of some of the world’s biggest and most highly-skilled shippers.
There are at least 20 million shipping containers crossing the world’s seas at any given time. 90% of world trade is transported by water and, as mega ships now dominate global waters, we’re talking mega money.
The shipping industry in the UK contributes over £32 billion to the annual GDP and supports over 500,000 jobs. In this exclusive access-led series we go behind the scenes at some of the biggest ports in the UK and Europe to find out what it takes for the largest freight operators, ports and shippers to deliver goods 24/7. This is transport as you’ve never seen it before and it’s on a MEGA scale.
