Safety is a key factor of sustainability.
No port can grow sustainably with costly accidents creating claims and driving up insurance premiums. Recent events suggest that windstorms and extreme weather events are becoming less predictable, more severe and affecting areas previously considered low risk.
Ensuring your port operations are safe and secure should be top priority. Here we aim to cover all aspects of port and terminal safety including quay crane risks, climatic risks, due diligence and contractual challenges, cargo theft and damage, misdeclaration, fire safety and much more.
However, if you have any concerns that are not covered here, you can always submit an enquiry on the right or email us at email@example.com.
