Digital shipping vetting platform RightShip has launched a “task force” dedicated to improving safety at ports.

RightPort has been set up with five staff in London and Singapore to complement due diligence intelligence provided to shipowners, managers, charterers and financiers.

It aims to bolster operational standards for environmental, social and governance issues, safety, sustainability and crew welfare.

This will protect the supply chain and the environment, as well as port budgets and reputations.
