Webinar on 24th October: Re-conceptualizing Indian Maritime Pilotage


by AIMPA - All India Marine Pilots' Association - published on 22 October 2020 69

Invitation by AIMPA:

"AIMPA has organised a unique WEBINAR first time ever in India about Indian Pilotage. We understand that this has been long overdue and much needed to revamp the pilotage operations. Benchmarking with the Pilotage done in the era of AI and BIG data our Pilotage is still being operated in past tense. The pilot ladders practices alone are costing industry heavily and yearly 2-3 lives are lost and many injured.

We are looking at deliberating pilot ladder issues along with Pilot transfer procedures in ports and Pilot training needs which finally culminate to safety of Navigation in ports. The safety of navigation alone being the major driver for cargo safety and movement, and anything commercial happening in ports worldwide. The safer the ports are , the more efficient and effective they are.

AIMPA has embarked into a new sensitisation of learning from those in the world who have been there and done that. Hearing these eminent speakers would really be a treat for those who want to be part of the change in India, that the Indian government is willing to see.

While we learn , AIMPA would certainly ensure that the learnings are taken to the policy makers and lawmakers in the country for betterment. AIMPA's vision for safety and security of Maritime Pilot would now be transformed to safety of Navigation as well. while engineer the safer world let's do our part in making India and its ports safe.

We urge that all those related to Maritime Pilot operations, port officials, port authorities, pilot selections and placement, pilot training, port traffic , MTIs faculty, students of presea and post-sea courses, seafarers, ship managers and superintendents attend this webinar.
