Crew change facilitation has come in the spotlight of the Singapore Ministry of Health, following cases of COVID-19 transmission between ship- and shore-based personnel.
Currently, the transmitted cases have had no impact on the crew change facilitation in Singapore, but the detection has placed spotlight on the maritime industry. In order to continue the crew change facilitation, the Singapore Shipping Association urges the industry to continue to follow the applicable health protocols.

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.
