About Us

How Came By SHIP Began

Our mission is to encourage the next generation to learn about the maritime industry and consider its potential career opportunities. Through this intrinsic purpose, the Came by SHIP campaign was born.

The UK is heavily dependent the shipping industry, which makes it even more important for future generations.

Merchant shipping is the lifeblood of the world economy on the high seas, short distances among neighbouring countries or from port to port in one country.

A strong level of enthusiasm will help ensure the maritime industry continues its contribution to the world trade and economy. The sector is full of different jobs and potential for a great career. 

If Came by SHIP and other campaigns succeed, today’s maritime professionals will retire knowing that their legacy is safe.
