INTERCARGO and RightShip are founding partners of DryBMS, a quality standard for the dry bulk sector. Safety, environmental and operational excellence are promoted through company self-assessment.
Both RightShip and INTERCARGO have strongly and consistently advocated the need for significant improvements to dry bulk safety standards. In August 2020 both organisations combined their expertise to create a single framework for the whole industry.
Supported by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and BIMCO, DryBMS now exists as a simple set of best practices and key performance indicators and raises the bar on safety, environmental and operational excellence.
RightShip and INTERCARGO announced on 21 January 2021 the launch of DryBMS, this important new quality standard for the dry bulk sector:
