Bulletin 1093 - Spanish

Recientemente P&I Associates (Pty) ha publicado un artículo titulado “La Etapa del Polizón Profesional” que analiza cómo afectan al mercado actual los polizones.

“Durante los últimos 15 años hemos sido testigos de un cambio en el mercado que ahora ha visto la llegada de la etapa del polizón profesional.”

“En la conferencia del Grupo Internacional de P&I que se celebró en Ámsterdam en 2009 planteamos nuestras preocupaciones e informamos sobre las dificultades con las que se enfrentan los armadores una vez están a bordo de los buques, su retirada de los buques y el incremento de los costes en los que incurren tanto los armadores como los clubes de P&I con el fin de resolver los casos de polizones.”

El artículo completo se puede leer a través del siguiente enlace:
