The Maritime Industry: is it possible to disrupt or are we bound to be tied with corruption?

The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network is mapping out where are the corrupted hubs for ports and maritime services within more than 150 companies. 

It is about time that an Anti-Corruptive Collective pushed for finding the hotspots that need more regulation and authoritative restrictions. According to the Seatrade Maritime News, the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network has done this since 2012, and successfully has helped fight corruptive practices in Nigeria, Egypt, and Ukraine. 

Right now, MACN is asking its members to report on countries or ports where they have experienced corruptive practices, and along with those reports, and the wider industry's involvement, they hope to find other countries where they can push governments and authorities to enforce stronger regulations. 

Maritime Fairtrade

According to the network’s purpose, it is in everyone’s best interest to encourage exposing corruptive practices in the industry. Captains and crew won’t be facing frequent threats, our businesses can decrease expenses by not allowing vessels to be kept in ports, and ports and nations can become more popular for vessel transits and become more attractive for visits. 

I want Trausty to enter a sector that works together for the betterment of the entire traditional, fixed, and corrupt industry. MACN’s efforts to bring all players together to change the entire culture that surrounds the maritime industry is something that Trausty wants to become a part of. We have an aligned vision and mission with this organization by providing innovative solutions to current practices, promoting a culture of integrity in its operations, and especially, encouraging regulations to prevent corruptive practices from developing. 

What corruptive practices have you seen and where? What do you think we can do as businesses to prevent these situations from happening?
