SQE Marine of Piraeus, Greece, and HudsonAnalytix, headquartered in the Philadelphia area of the United States, announce they have formed a Teaming Agreement between their respective organizations for collaboration in the broad area of maritime risk management. They will be working jointly to offer one another’s services and products to the shipping industry and to develop new offerings encompassing compliance, training, and consulting.
HudsonAnalytix and SQE Marine boast both diverse and complimentary capabilities and regional strengths. The Teaming Agreement creates a powerhouse that can serve and support its clients and the international shipping and maritime transportation industry as a whole. Both firms are answering today’s needs but are now positioned to support the future challenges faced by the industry in risk management. Clients can expect broader service and product offerings, competitive pricing and the highest quality standards delivered by a combined force of known and technically proficient staff.
HudsonAnalytix CEO Cynthia A. Hudson explains that a deeper presence in the Greek shipping community, and a European facing operation, augments Hudson’s already successful locations and operations in Piraeus and Rome/Naples. “For us it is all about being the best provider of risk management services, offering the highest benefit to the client” observed Ms. Hudson. “We are very pleased to work so closely with SQE Marine, a firm for whom we have the highest regard”. In Ms. Hudson’s view, HudsonAnalytix’ solid technical approach to this industry, whether in US trade support or international areas like cyber risk and security management, work well to add breadth and depth to SQE Marine in new areas. SQE Marine Consulting, Ship Documentation, training events and many other offerings in turn support and enlarge the HudsonAnalytix mission and will be promoted by them.
Apostolos Belokas, Managing Director of SQE Marine, remarked that he welcomes this new collaboration with HudsonAnalytix: “We share common values and a vision about the future of the shipping industry and its need to embrace practical risk management” he stated. “Industry is changing at an unprecedented rate. It is even more critical to offer a global platform of excellence leveraging off decades of combined experience”. Mr. Belokas is also the Managing Editor of SAFETY4SEA, a multichannel information and events platform.
