Seafarers cannot be forced to accept vaccination, ICS warns

SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls

SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls, the International Chamber of Shipping says. The situation could put owners in the invidious position of having to cancel voyages rather than take on the legal, financial and reputational risks of being denied entry, the trade association added.  Natalie Shaw,  Director of Employment Affairs for the ICS is a speaker at our forthcoming Containing COVID-19: Containerisation’s Role in Global Vaccine Logistics online seminar on April 15 2021 – you can book your place and join us here.

Chilean ports steam ahead with port worker vaccination process in Latam region

Chilean ports steam ahead with port worker vaccination process in Latam region

Chilean sanitary authorities recognise port workers as ‘keyworkers’ and ‘essential personnel’, ensuring they are a priority group for vaccination against coronavirus – recognition of the important role they play in keeping trade moving.

It is important to give visibility to these countries where there is recognition to port workers, and Chile has stood out within Latin America for leading the vaccination process in the region, inoculating essential personnel since December 2020, starting with health front-line workers, a campaign that went on through January 2021. Starting in February the Health Ministry began the massive vaccination process for the entire population, prioritizing the elderly and other essential workers not related to the health front-line, among which are the port workers of the country.

Major global ports gear up for worldwide distribution of new COVID-19 vaccines

Cold storage construction heats up amid COVID-19 pandemic

Port group PSA International, whose global network encompasses over 50 locations in 26 countries prepares to play a significant role in the worldwide distribution of those vaccines that can now be transported via sea freight due to their longer shelf life and less stringent temperature controls.

The first COVID-19 vaccines to be authorised by major governments and organizations have largely been transported by air, but this appears set to change as new vaccines come on stream.

Some of the vaccines currently in use, such as the version produced by Pfizer, require storage temperatures of under -70°C and have a shelf life of 35 days under these conditions..

Maerk’s Global Vertical Head of Pharmaceuticals answers questions on its rollout

Hristo Petkov, Maersk’s Global Vertical Head of Pharmaceuticals and speaker at the forthcoming Containing COVID-19: Containerisation’s role in global vaccine logistics, answers questions on how the vaccine rollout is progressing.

The maritime industry is on course to play a much larger role in the battle against coronavirus as new vaccines come on stream. Maersk, the world’s largest shipping company, will inevitably be one of those leading the charge once vaccines can be transported by sea. But how is the vaccine rollout going? And how will it develop? To find the answers to these questions and more, we spoke to Hristo Petkov, Maersk’s Global Vertical Head of Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare.

Petkov spoke to Trans.INFO ahead of his appearance at  Alcott Global’s February Movers and Makers Cold Chain summit, which featured 1-on-1 virtual networking, a panel discussion with experts, and speeches by C-level speakers from Global Manufacturers, NGOs, airlines, airports, ports, 3PLs, and more.
