Our Correspondents network extends around the globe to offer assistance and guidance to our Members wherever their trading operations take them.

Correspondents are selected on the basis of their practical knowledge of the shipping regulations and practices in their local ports and their P&I insurance experience. They act as independent advisers on behalf of our Members and are available to provide direct and immediate assistance in the event of an incident or casualty involving a vessel entered with the Club.
