With only 320 km between the two cities, London and Rotterdam are well connected with a long history. The two maritime cities share their international view on the world, trade and maritime sector.

Within this sector, the maritime business services are of upmost importance; who else can finance, insure and survey ships and its cargo?

Maritime business services are excellent in both cities and to enhance the trade and exchange knowledge even further, Rotterdam, Maritime Capital of Europe is proud to organize a lunch meeting during the London Shipping Week.

In a perfect location, the RMSC invites relations of the maritime business services to attend this special business lunch on the tight relationships between our two cities.
