Why consider a joint venture?
Joint ventures (JV) have become an important strategic option for many maritime companies and international businesses. They are typically less risky than mergers and are easier to unbundle than full organizational mergers. With the scale of organizations within the maritime industry, JVs are a useful way of gaining the benefits of collaboration without the economic and political risk associated with mergers or other business combinations.
