Cyber compliance in the crosshairs

23 March 2021

The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) latest resolution offers a much-needed path to help prepare for cyber attacks, which are seen as increasingly likely in this digital age. Since January, shipowners and operators have been obliged to assess and prepare for cyber threats to comply with the new resolution.

BIMCO and RINA propose method to calculate energy efficiency of existing ships

10 March 2021

BIMCO and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) have identified a need for – and therefore proposed - an alternative method to determine an accurate reference speed in connection with a carbon reduction framework currently under development by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The aim is to secure that older ships also can obtain a reliable energy efficient design index (for existing ships), even if the original sea trial data from when the ship was delivered, is lost.

Just in Time Arrival Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2021

05 March 2021

The Just in Time Arrival Clause 2021 is for use in voyage charter parties where owners and charterers have agreed to operate a just in time arrival scheme that permits charterers to ask owners to optimise the speed of the ship to arrive at a destination at an agreed time. The clause takes a generic approach so that it can also form part of different vessel and port management schemes around the world. It may also be used together with the BIMCO Port Call Data Exchange Clause 2021 which has been designed to encourage wider application and use of the IMO data model framework for the harmonised exchange of ship/port information.

Shipping industry takes new step to protect marine environments

04 February 2021

Cleaning a ship’s submerged parts from barnacles and other growths, while the ship is in the water, can transfer invasive species to local marine environments unless it is properly cleaned and the debris is captured. To combat this problem, and to provide clarity and quality assurance to shipowners, ports and government authorities, BIMCO and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) have published the first industry standard on in-water cleaning of ships.

New Cost Category group added

21 December 2020

BIMCO Shipping KPI opens a new chapter with the implementation of reporting on cost categories. BIMCO has no access nor interest in these data on the user level. We encourage users to apply information for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020 and submit valuable feedback to the BIMCO Shipping KPI team
