Welcome to SPNL – Shipping Professional Network in London

FOR young professionals BY young shipping professionals

“The Shipping Professional Network in London (SPNL) is London’s own meeting place for young shipping professionals. The SPNL enjoys significant industry support, with industry backing from the UK Chamber of Shipping. Through our regularly organised events, we aim to bring together young professionals from all aspects of the industry to network, socialise and learn more about the industry we proudly form part of.

Our events offer members the opportunity to hear expert opinions on topical issues by industry respected leaders, from various fields in the maritime industry. These fields range from the bunker industry, ship valuation, maritime law, ports, piracy, ship classification, shipping finance, maritime economics, research and much more. Being a member of SPNL not only provides you with a ticket to these informative presentations from industry leaders, but also a multitude of networking opportunities.
See you at our next event!
