Online maritime risk map from North P&I Club and Gray Page

Maritime Threats and Incidents Picture Maritime Threats and Incidents Picture North

The North P&I Club has teamed up with maritime consultancy Gray Page to create an online map highlighting threats and incidents at sea.

Based on an interactive Google map platform, the Maritime Threats and Incidents Picture identifies commercial risks including fraud, sanctions, corruption and trafficking, as well as physical threats to seafarers such as piracy, kidnap, armed robbery and hijack for cargo theft. The danger areas are based on the current UK Joint War Committee listed areas for war, piracy, terrorism and other hull perils.

“The new maritime threats and incidents picture is the latest stage of our collaborative relationship with Gray Page, which started in 2011 with the launch of our vetting service for armed maritime security providers,” said North joint managing director Alan Wilson.

“The new interactive tool provides real-time information on maritime incidents, casualties and threats to shipping worldwide, enabling our members to respond quickly and immediately to current incidents.”

The risk map will be jointly hosted on the websites of North and Gray Page, who began collaborating on this particular project in 2014.

“Gray Page first developed and launched the maritime threats and incidents picture back in 2013,” explains Jim Mainstone, head of intelligence at Gray Page.

“Then last year, North and Gray Page began jointly collecting intelligence on the ‘enduring risks’ facing shipping for the purposes of populating the database.”

“We hope that by sharing reliable risk analysis freely with the shipping community, the industry will be able to mitigate some of the inherent risks in shipping.”
