The new EU sanctions are live!
Reshaping Global Ocean Trade and Shipping Practices
The new EU sanctions package against Russia took effect on June 24, 2023. The package includes new clauses with a dramatic impact on global ocean trade for dry/wet bulk, and containerized goods stakeholders globally.
Port authorities, traders, shipping companies, bunker suppliers, and more will now have to go beyond sanctions list screening, and track deceptive shipping practices through every milestone of a vessel’s journey.
Not all that transmit are legit
Going Beyond Dark Activities
Dark activities are still popular, but today’s illicit actors opt for more advanced tactics. They manipulate vessels’ AIS to seem legitimate, while actually engaging in deceptive practices that expose shipping stakeholders to regulatory and financial risks. AIS transmissions cannot be trusted. Organizations require careful screening and advanced Maritime AI™ insights for more accurate decision-making.
