North to enhance routing risk advice

North to enhance routing risk advice

(Posted on 23/10/20)

Leading international shipping insurer North P&I Club has launched a new marine risk awareness solution, hosted on its market leading interactive MyGlobeView digital platform.

Route Risk Advice, from North, offers users an innovative digital tool designed to evaluate and demonstrate the potential hazards of a voyage from port of origin to destination. The application joins a growing stable of MyGlobeView solutions, which includes the 2020 Safety4Sea Technology Award-winning Covid-19 Tracking Tool.

MyGlobeView provides North members and correspondents with exclusive access to over 40 alerting and reporting features, including industry news, port details, trading and commercial updates, and guidance on sanctions, travel and weather. The addition of the new application means that users can now input a voyage plan and receive up to date information on the risks that may arise at sea and in port.

“We developed Route Risk Advice with our Members in mind, taking into consideration their feedback to give them greater control of the datasets available on MyGlobeView,” says Colin Gillespie, Director of Loss Prevention, North P&I Club. “It is a constantly evolving solution to which we regularly add new layers of data, helping Members to plan safe and efficient routes based on up-to-date, reliable information.”

Users of Route Risk Advice can establish bespoke reports based on specific routes and locations, which they can save or print for future reference. These reports are uniquely supplemented with North’s in-house expertise and knowledge from our claims, legal and loss prevention teams, Gillespie adds. A built-in measurement tool accurately determines the distance between any given points, while a feedback function encourages suggestions for general enhancements and new data feeds, enabling continuous improvement.

These features and more are available to North-entered members and correspondents via their personal MyNorth account, says Paul Jennings, Chief Executive, North P&I Club. “Route Risk Advice is a welcome solution and a worthy addition to our digital portfolio, the full benefits of which can be accessed by anyone with a MyNorth account. Subscribers to MyNorth can also create their own publications library, address books and tailored news feeds and access premium content from our in-house experts,” he concludes.
