January 16, 2007

Germanischer Lloyd has restructured its Maritime Services. In order to respond even better to client requests the classification society has optimized its workflows. As from January 2007, the Maritime Services will be subdivided into the divisions Fleet in Service, Ship Newbuilding, Maritime Systems and Components and Innovation and Strategic Research. Consisting of a number of competence centers and departments, each division has been assigned to a client group: shipowners, shipyards and supply industry.
