After a year of denied port access, slow re-supplies, difficult crew changeovers, and onerous repatriation processes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, fostering this dialogue is an important step as the world gets moving again.

  • ISOA

With such a broad membership base, it’s important to remind the world of the contributions all of our Members bring to keeping this world moving.
