Shippingcluster, the maritime LinkedIn

Eirik Fosse Eirik Fosse Shippingcluster

Shippingcluster, a free social network for the maritime industry, has been joined by more than 500 professionals and 100 companies from over 30 countries since it launched last month, its founding partner and CEO Eirik Fosse told Digital Ship.

The Norwegian-based website allows people and firms to create industry profiles with relevant industry keywords so as to be found by the greater community. It recently added maritime jobs, where job openings can be posted and tagged by keywords.

It plans to soon integrate a messaging functionality and industry events, so its members can communicate one by one and to a broader audience. Also in the pipeline are industry apps, including third party apps and services.

Shippingcluster notes that amongst the millions of users on LinkedIn, only a fraction is relevant for shipping. “In the near future I expect to see all industries having industry-dedicated social networks,” Eirik Fosse told Digital Ship. “The one-size-fits-all concept is being challenged by specialised networks tailored to industry specific needs, without all the unrelated noise.”

Shippingcluster is by invitation only, to keep out the spammers. To join one needs to be invited by any existing member, or go to and ask for an invitation.
