    “Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport.

    How Securing The Maritime Sector Isn’t Always Plain Sailing

    As an island nation, it’ll perhaps come as no surprise that our maritime sector is one of our most pivotal. The latest estimates place the overall value of the seafaring industry at around £116 billion, and offers employment to more than a million people living in the UK. Sadly though, with such popularity comes the inherent risk of crime.

    Many people immediately jump to piracy as the major issue facing shipping by sea, and that’s certainly true, with more than 300 hijackings reported in the most recent figures. Maritime issues aren’t just on open waters, though – instances of hijacking and robbery (67 incidents) and cargo and fuel theft (375 incidents) are steadily rising, prompting more robust security for our maritime sector.
