Watch the latest installment of Splash TV to hear how third party vetting giant RightShip plans to make the life of those who abandon crews that bit trickier. Warwick Norman, the outgoing CEO of RightShip, was one of the panellists during the crewing and HR session at the recent Maritime CEO Forum, a session where Splash’s 2017 campaign on crew abandonment was one of the key talking points.
RightShip, whose clients and backers include some of the largest shippers in the world, has taken the database of abandoned ships created by the International Labour Organization and the International Maritime Organization and is now looking at how to include details of companies who have a history of crew abandonment into its data matrix.
Norman explained how this might work to Maritime CEO Forum delegates in Hong Kong late last month.
The forum was sponsored by Anglo-Eastern, Cobham, Dualog, DVB Bank, Liberian Registry, RightShip, Veritas Petroleum Services, and V.Ships Agency.
The high level, by invite only Maritime CEO Forum returns to Singapore on March 13.
