ICS offers its full support to the shipping community during this COVID-19 crisis, which caused the shipping industry many barriers and challenges to overcome, says an article published on its website.
The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) published a video highlighting how important seafarers are to keeping supply chains open during the COVID-19 pandemic, reminding of the #HeroesAtSeaShoutOut campaign.
Guidance and recommendations
ICS is working hard to support members and the wider shipping community to provide guidance, recommendations and information for shipowners, seafarers and governments.
To help protect the health of seafarers and passengers as well as the general public, the International Chamber of Shipping ensures that best practice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) is available.
They are not alone
Recently, to express their recognition towards seafarers, the shipping industry, including the UK Chamber of Shipping, encouraged as many ships as possible across the globe to sound their horns, if safe to do so, to celebrate the International Workers’ Day, Workers’ Day, Labour Day or May Day, May 1st.
