The North by the Sea III 2014

International voyages are an important part of Iceland’s economy. The share of the fishing industry in this transport is high. In earlier times Icelanders were dependent on others in sea transport which put severe limitations on commerce and cultural exchange. Later Icelandic shipping companies offered a full range of transport services around the world based on reliable and efficient transport system. These carriers constitute one of the pillars of society and play an important role.
