The Maritime Industry

Invented 3.000 BC and still functioning

The maritime industry, often referred to as the shipping industry is the safest and most eco-friendly way of commercial transport. This makes, among other things, the maritime sector responsible for approximately 90% of the worlds traded goods are transported by sea. Over 50,000 vessels are transported internationally, which may carry every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality. Germany, Greece and Japan are the leading countries in terms of the worlds biggest fleet.

What all vessels, small or big, dredging or container, cruise or oil tanker have in common is their need for instrumentation. In the maritime industry, conditions can be harsh. Both the vessel as its crew can be exposed to freezing temperatures, blistering heats and everything in between. With this in mind, you do not want to worry about failing (mostly crucial) instrumentation. At GMS Instruments, we are the trusted distributor and service partner of the world’s leading brands in pressure-, temperature-, engine-, gas detection– and much more instrumentation. Located in Rotterdam, at the heart of Europes largest seaport, we are able to act swiftly to various requests. Whether it is a pick up of several instruments like pressure gauges, gas detectors and torxs for calibration within 24-hours or an onsite reparation on your valves. We know what it takes.
