Conscious of its importance and its positive influences in many fields, the Luxembourg maritime sector began to organize itself in 2008. The "Cluster maritime luxembourgeois" society was created as a result.
35 members strong representing all maritime trades, the Cluster maritime luxembourgeois contains ship owners, ship managers, maritime financiers, insurers, logistics experts, consultants, lawyers, classification companies, dredging companies, and also an organization fighting against piracy. Thanks to the railroad company CFL, Luxembourg has many excellent, daily, and rapid connections to the great ports of the North Sea. The trains carry merchandise which the country needs and allows the export of surplus products in return.
