This year the Ships & Ports website remained very active and busy, setting new standards in maritime reportage and creating new records for pageviews and volume of visitors. We had visitors from almost every country of the world including Nigeria, Kenya, UAE, United States of America, United Kingdom, Netherlands, India, Indonesia, Russia, Philiphines and Canada among others.
Without a doubt 2016 has been a tough year for the maritime and oil and gas industries, but we kept faith with our readers and advertisers. While thanking God for taking us this far, we look forward to 2016 with high hopes.
As we bid 2016 goodbye, it is our pleasure to bring to your memory the 20 most read stories on our website in 2016. We exclusively broke most of these stories, which virtually went viral, with several newspapers and other online news sites rehashing them or simply playing catch up.
