Web alert: BIMCO is requesting shipping companies participate in its new vetting scheme for dry bulk terminals
02 February 2015
Ships are being asked to complete a quick survey when they leave a terminal. The data will be pooled and the results used to rate terminals on areas such as handling loading/unloading and berthing arrangements. Bimco has said the identity of the ship or the company sending the survey would be kept confidential.
Terminals will be given a star rating and Bimco will also publish detailed reports which ships can use as guidance for planning future use of terminals around the world.
For example, shipping companies will be able to find out if there is a trend for ship damage or surges at particular terminals.
