Global Ports Network

Dedicated research vessels normally transit fully equipped to a region of study. The use of regionally-deployed chartered vessels, adapted and mobilized for scientific research, requires a local base of operations at each departure port for mobilization and demobilization.

Global Oceans has access to a network of over 350 port offices in 66 countries, staffed by 3,800 maritime professionals with expertise in operational logistics. Any of these port offices can be utilized as a local Global Oceans expedition Project Management Office (PMO) with dedicated call lines, regional emergency protocols, and staffed with an expedition-dedicated project manager working closely with the Global Oceans team.
