Guardian maritime limited are highlighting “the silent cut throat” the most common pirate deterrent used today which is causing a massive affect to the marine environment and to the increasing sick days of crew through injury and infection.
The three BUZZ words in shipping for 2021 and beyond seem to be Digitalization, Decarbonization and Innovation, these subjects being current and critical to the future of shipping. However, before you start considering these, your Seafarers must come first, without your crews you will not have the need for Digitalization, Decarbonization and who will be operating the new innovated ideas and projects. Before, placing budgets on these factors, review your budgets of the Lives of your crews, they remain the future of your shipping industry. Protect your crews, protect your vessels and with the rising costs of supply chain protect your budgets.
Teresa Stevens has spent a great deal of her life before inventing Guardian in the catering industry so had little experience of the shipping world. Teresa became interested in anti-piracy issues after reading an article in the press in 2011. She awoke one Sunday morning with an idea of how to prevent pirates boarding ships transiting the HRA’s of the world’s oceans.
Guardian Maritime are facing the shipping industry today, online with ALJ Group at the Green Tech In Shipping Forum USA. Guardian will be presenting to the forum, the reasons behind Guardian Anti Piracy Barriers and the urgent need across the globe to be more aware of the increasing piracy moving further than the HRAs.
Guardian Maritime are supporting Mercy Ships, by providing anti-piracy barriers to both of their hospital ships, Africa mercy and the Global Mercy - free. Mercy Ships is a faith-based international development organisation that deploys hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, delivering vital, free healthcare to people in desperate need.
