Members are advised of the UK MTO advisory published yesterday concerning the attack in the Red Sea.
Whatever the type of attack BIMCO has suggested for some time that the safest way possible to reduce the risk of collateral damage is to avoid transit in close proximity of coalition warships. This may not always be realistic within the confines of the Bab el Mandeb and the TSS but efforts to do so should be made as long as ship safety and navigation safety are not compromised. What is fairly certain is that this attack is related to the ongoing conflict in Yemen.
BIMCO will continue to advise membership if any further facts and/or guidance becomes available.
