MARDATA Named North American Agent For Lloyd's Information Services

Lloyd's Maritime Information Services, Ltd. of London—a joint venture of Lloyd's Register of Shipping and Lloyd's of London Press— has appointed the Maritime Data Network (MARDATA) of Stamford, Conn., to coordinate all of its sales and marketing activities in North America. The Connecticut company has changed its name to Lloyd's Mardata to reflect this appointment.

MARDATA was founded in 1976, and has since become a leading supplier of database services to the international maritime industry, providing essential marine shipping information online via terrestrial and satellite communications networks.

Formerly minority shareholders in MARDATA, Lloyd's Register and Lloyd's of London Press recently acquired a majority interest in the firm, paving the way for an increased scope of activities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

In addition to continuing its international online database services, Lloyd's Mardata will be the North American representative for the other operating divisions of Lloyd's Maritime Information Services: Lloyd's Shipping Information Services, including data sales, Viewdata, and Seadata; and Sea Group, LLP's maritime consulting arm.
