INTERCARGO condemns deadly attacks on bulk carriers

INTERCARGO condemns deadly attacks on bulk carriers

(Posted on 14/06/24)

Following news that a seafarer has died and another has been seriously injured in the latest Houthi attacks on merchant vessels in the Red Sea area, INTERCARGO, the International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners, extends its heartfelt sympathy to the seafarers, their families and the ship operator companies who have experienced these attacks.

INTERCARGO unites and promotes quality dry bulk shipping, bringing together 250 forward thinking companies from 30 countries. INTERCARGO convened for the first time in 1980 in London and has been participating with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) since 1993.

In a statement, INTERCARGO said “unequivocally condemns in the strongest terms the actions of any party deliberately targeting innocent civilian seafarers and ships peacefully sailing through international waters.

We demand that all involved parties cease their deliberate and targeted attacks on innocent seafarers with immediate effect. In addition, we urge all States to further enhance maritime security in this region.

INTERCARGO reminds the world that seafarers and global shipping kept the world fed and warm during the pandemic, irrespective of politics. It is the world's moral duty to protect seafarers.”

INTERCARGO provides the forum where dry bulk shipowners, managers and operators are informed about, discuss, and share concerns on key topics and regulatory challenges, especially in relation to safety, security, the environment, and operational excellence. The Association promotes its members’ positions to IMO, as well as to other shipping and international industry fora, having free and fair competition as a principle.
