The Chain; ’Awareness and best practice in the nautical chain’
This EHMC video is a joint production by all those who are key to the business of bringing ships into port (the nautical chain); harbour masters, agents, pilots, tugboat captains, boatmen, ship masters, hydrographic offices and terminal operators. For the first time a film will give an insight into the key roles of the nautical chain.
The aim of this film is to strengthen the chain by creating greater awareness of each others’ jobs, sharing best practice and gaining a better understanding of the impact of individual operations. This way each participant can strengthen its own link in the chain and –by better co-operation– make the whole chain stronger. We believe that this will result in a safer, smoother and more efficient voyage from berth to berth.
The Chain is an initiative of Ben van Scherpenzeel for the European Harbour Masters’ Committee who you may want to contact for any comments or questions; Scherpenzeel.firstname.lastname@example.org
