Piracy, Maritime Security and Migrant Movement

Maritime issues happen quickly. Whether it is a high risk piracy attack, migrant movements, attempted boardings, etc. Without ARMS, vessels don’t have the critical information to make decisions to keep their voyage safe.

Civil Issues Affecting Port, Canals, and Waterways

Civil issues affect port and waterway operations on a daily basis. Strikes, civil unrest, riots and work stoppages all cost port and maritime operations substantial expense each year. ARMS provides the most up to date information to ensure you have the critical information to make better decisions improving your operations, protecting your assets and reducing your costs.

Civil Unrest

Worldwide Disease Outbreaks and Health Epidemics

Major disease outbreaks and health epidemics continue to cause issues to vessel operations. ARMS is the only shipboard based platform providing real-time updates on all of the COVID-19 related closures, quarantines, delays and restrictions. Exposure to medical related issues adds additional costs through mitigation but also negative publicity. The ARMS platform provides a single source for specific or geographic health issues and epidemics worldwide.

Disease Outbreak

Major Weather Events

ARMS provides weather information for major worldwide weather issues so you can stay informed about how these events could affect your shipboard operations and route planning. IMSA has an exclusive partnership with WRI (Weather Routing Inc.) for their proprietary weather alerts which automatically populate into the ARMS platform. ARMS also gathers additional weather data from government sources around the world for all of our weather related alerts. Dryad Global clients can reach out directly to WRI for customised weather routing forecasts.


Cyber Security

Many governments identify cyber issues as the number one threat facing companies around the world. The maritime sector is extremely vulnerable and has suffered several attacks and attempted attacks in recent history. ARMS provides users with worldwide alerts on cyber threats and issues.

What Our Customers Say

A premium product that does exactly what I need it to - help me make security decisions when the pressure is on.
I was able to make a trade when others wouldn’t because I felt confident that port access was possible when the rumours were to the contrary.
The armed guard concierge service is excellent - I get access to a fully vetted pool of security providers and the costs were so much more reasonable than I was getting before.
Putting a case together to convince or owners that we can operate safely in West Africa was not easy, but having the quality badge of Dryad Global behind us with the first class reporting made it possible.
