Stowaways and Shipping

Stowaways are an ever-present problem for the shipping industry, in particular to those trading off the coast of West Africa, in Central America, Colombia, Venezuela and in the Dominican Republic. In addition to vessels’ trade patterns, the problem of stowaways is closely linked to vessel, cargo type, and the level of security training and awareness of the crew. We provide resources, training, security services and bespoke advice to cargo carriers, shipping operators, cruise ships, masters and crews to help them mitigate against and prevent stowaways.


In accordance with IMO principles and guidelines for rescue at sea, we will also provide support to clients if they discover displaced people.
