Greece has long been a formidable maritime nation. The country’s culture and mythology are intrinsically tied to the sea and shipping remains a key strength of the modern nation.

“We’ve always been a seafaring nation and our contributions to shipping are extremely important to the world,” says George Gratsos, president of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping.

The country’s modern shipping industry started taking shape after the second world war when ship owners, such as Aristotle Onassis, purchased Liberty cargo ships from the United States to rebuild fleets destroyed during the war.
