The UK Club is grateful to have been invited to contribute to the senior officers seminar for Members’ Misuga Kaiun which was recently held in Manila. Capt Anuj Velankar and Hironobu Bekku represented the Club at the seminar.
The Club gave a talk on bulk carrier cargo claims and means with which to mitigate the losses. Participating in the seminar allowed the Club to interact directly with the senior officers and also with the shore staff working in Members various offices in Japan, Hong Kong and Rotterdam who were also attending the seminar.
During the Manila trip, Anuj and Bekku also gave a talk to a joint gathering of office staff of the various ship managers of Members. The talk given by Capt Anuj focused on various claims and issues faced by the Members and in particular covered best practices related to carriage of timber by sea.
The Club values these interactions immensely and would like to thank the Members for the opportunity. If you would like to invite the participation by the Club in similar interactions, please contact your usual Club contact or the Clubs Loss Prevention department.
