In view of this extraordinary crisis, BIMCO has made all COVID-19 related content on its website open and free for everyone.
On the BIMCO-website, shipping companies can find information and advice related to crewing, port restrictions and contractual issues - as well as other matters - in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. The information is updated daily.
Initially, the content will be freely available for a period of three months.
You can see an overview of the COVID-19 related content here: https://www.bimco.org/covid19
Access BIMCO's COVID-19 related articles and advice.
Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
For general guidance and information on cargo-related queries.
