INTERCARGO Bulk Carrier Casualty Report highlights positive improvement in safety of dry bulk shipping”

 

– There is now a clear 10-year trend showing significant improvements in safety across the dry bulk shipping sector.
– In 2023 there was one loss of a dry bulk vessel and no loss of lives.
– Safety improvements have been achieved despite the dry bulk fleet growing by 20% more in tonnage over the past decade.

Annual casualty figures from INTERCARGO, the International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners, highlight continuing improvement in the safety performance of the sector. The Association’s Bulk Carrier Casualty Report records the yearly loss of vessels (vessels over 10,000 DwT) and lives across the dry bulk sector, with the intention of monitoring the impact of safety measures in the sector across the globe.

Announcing the publishing of the latest Bulk Carrier Casualty Report 2014-2023, Dimitris Fafalios, INTERCARGO Chairman, commented: “Bulk carrier safety must never be overlooked. We have come a long way since the ‘dark days’ of the 1980s, when we experienced many tragic losses of lives and vessels. Since then, safety performance of the sector has steadily improved, thanks in large part to concerted efforts by INTERCARGO with other industry stakeholders. These latest statistics reveal an impressive achievement, especially when considering the significant rise in the number of bulk carriers during this period.”
