Navigating Latin America: P&I focus on Brazil
About this webinar
The Brazilian shipowning community has played a key role in the successful development of the UK Club for nearly 70 years. The first Brazilian member, Companhia Comercio e Navegacao (“CCN”), appears in the Club records in 1948. In 1983, the UK Club was honored by the election to its Board of Directors of its first Brazilian director, and the Club has maintained almost continuous representation from leading Brazilian shipping executives since then.
While Brazil is a world-class shipping hub, trading to and from the regions presents unique challenges to the domestic and foreign-flagged ships calling at Brazil’s ports,for both locally-based and overseas Members, the Club’s examines current shipping trends in Brazil and provides valuable insight to assist with smooth sailing.

The region comprising Latin America and the Caribbean is a busy one for the UK P&I Club. Some prominent Members have a large number of tons entered with the Club and have this region as their principal place of business. Moreover, many of the Club’s entered ships frequently call at Latin American and Caribbean ports regardless of where the Member is based, which can undoubtedly be anywhere in the world.
