Geollect provide International Group of P&I Clubs a Covid-19 Response Tool
Geollect worked with the North of England P&I Club to provide a COVID-19 dashboard to the International Group of P&I Clubs. The dashboard launched today and is availble to assist shipowners, charterers, operators and other parties in the maritime sector track country and port specific advice around the world, detailing the measures being put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The IG stated that “these are uncertain times as the COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges for the industry and society at large. It is important that the most up to date and relevant information on COVID-19 measures taken in different jurisdictions are available and accessible via a single source and in an easy to use format. As such, this interactive tool will allow parties 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.”
Geollect has sourced data from all 13 International Group Clubs, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), World Health Organization (WHO) and other leading sources (including Wilhelmsen and GAC). This near-real time data can assist ships with chartering, operations and help prepare staff for what to expect when arriving in port. Access to the dashboard is via the links on the International Group’s COVID-19 page.
