The International Group has launched a new online digital tool (dashboard) to assist shipowners, charterers, operators and other parties in the maritime sector to track country and port-specific advice, detailing the measures being put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are challenging times, for the maritime industry and the society at large and measures implemented by some ports and countries across the globe to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 are raising significant operational consequences for all parties engaged in the maritime sector.
As a result, the 13 member P&I Clubs of the International Group have launched a publicly accessible online dashboard to facilitate the dissemination of port and country specific COVID-19 restrictions. This interactive tool will allow industry to identify commercial risks and physical threats to shipping around the world and provide live updates as to the number of confirmed cases of the virus, countries at risk and what to look out for. The tool sources data from all 13 International Group Clubs, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), World Health Organization (WHO) and other leading sources, which can also assist ships with chartering, operations and help prepare staff for what to expect when arriving in port.
Access to this online dashboard is available by means of either of the following links:

This online dashboard has been developed with Geollect, a global Geospatial Intelligence Analysis Company, and the North through the development of their existing Globeview platform. The International Group will continue to provide updates through this dashboard on the restrictions imposed and the measures taken by ports and countries around the world as a result of COVID-19 whilst any such restrictions remain in place.
