Lloyd’s List began its journey 300 years ago with the posting of ship arrival and departure bulletins in a London coffee house. Now it offers news, data, analytics and insight to help maritime professionals make confident decisions and plan strategically.
In the 1700s, Edward Lloyd’s coffee house on Lombard Street was a popular meeting place for businesspeople and workers in the rapidly growing maritime industry. Recognising his customers’ appetite for news from ports around the world, Lloyd posted ship arrivals and departures to keep the daily crowds coming back.
In 1734, what had become a weekly shipping newsletter was named Lloyd’s List. Readers got latest information about domestic sea routes and ports both close to home and far away. Lloyd’s List became a reliable source of vital information for merchants, shippers, insurers, vessel owners and crew.
These days, Lloyd’s List Intelligence, within which Lloyd’s List operates, offers expertise that keeps global trade moving safely and efficiently. Customers around the globe can act with speed and confidence, relying on our analytics, data, insights and news https://lloydslist.maritimeintelligence.informa.com/ to help them navigate challenges and anticipate changes in the future.
