INTERCARGO extends its support and sympathy to all members of the shipping community who have been caught up in the terrible conflict in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with all those at the centre of the conflict, and the seafarers trapped at sea and unable to be with their loved ones.
It is doubly unjust for the seafaring community that this tragedy should come so hard on the heels of the pandemic, a time when our crews were tested to the full and are still only recovering from the hardships endured. A significant proportion of seafarers working on board bulk carriers are personally affected by the current circumstances.
INTERCARGO is working closely with its members and other industry bodies to support all those affected by the current dreadful situation.
