What our clients say about us

  • BLUE has ably supported Verifavia Shipping in launching and developing our EU MRV verification services for the global shipping sector. BLUE has provided us with continuous support and consultancy across brand development, message creation, media relations, social media, event support, speaker opportunities and marketing materials. We particularly appreciate BLUE's responsiveness and overall reliability, as well as their extensive contact network that spans the industry. We would highly recommend BLUE to any organisation that needs to build its brand and reputation in the shipping sector.

    Julien Dufour
    CEO, Verifavia Shipping
  • With its vast network and deep industry knowledge, BLUE is by far the leading communications consultancy specialising in the maritime industry. They have been hugely instrumental in helping to introduce and accelerate our sustainable marine fuel proposition. And not only that, they’re just really fun to work with too!

    Dirk Kronemeijer
    CEO, GoodFuels Marine
  • United Arab Shipping Company selected BLUE Communications to support on two important communications projects. The BLUE team was able to provide excellent support during a critical phase of UASC’s growth and expansion, which included to name a few: the preparation and announcement of the “Ocean 3” alliance and “Hamburg Sud” cooperation agreement, the delivery of the first ultra-large LNG ready vessel “Sajir”, reefer services expansion and the preparation for the delivery of the world’s greenest ultra-large vessel “Barzan”. BLUE Communication’s team members were an extension of my in-house team, and they were, at all times, insightful and reliable.

    Mahmoud Fansa
    Head of Corporate Communications, UASC
  • We have benefited hugely from BLUE's media and other stakeholder networks and maritime market knowledge in terms of developing our PR and communications as a global, growing business. In addition, BLUE has become an invaluable partner in terms of business development, uncovering new potential sales channels through its networks. We consider BLUE an vital extension of the work we do.

    Executive Vice President for Operations, NAPA
  • BLUE has played a pivotal role in supporting Ardmore Shipping from our early beginnings to becoming the public company that we are today, with a fleet of over 20 vessels. BLUE intrinsically understands who we are as an organisation, our goals, our values and the reputation that we wish to build. They are a trusted source of expertise and support on all aspects of our approach to strategic communications and public relations, and they have done an outstanding job of helping us to build our profile and deliver our messages to the tanker market. Put simply, BLUE are an essential part of our team.
