INTERTANKO ADDRESSES MEPs ON THE REGULATION OF PILOTAGE

As an industry association, one of INTERTANKO’s main aims is to promote a free and competitive shipping market, and we have on many occasions campaigned against artificial restrictions in the opportunity to compete for business. INTERTANKO is generally opposed to the practice of monopolies. At the same time our view is that safety considerations must always be paramount. Pilotage is a safety system for the protection of waterways, port facilities, the local community, the environment and the vessel; it is not and should not be subject to unfettered competition with only scant regard for safety.
