The partnership will see Witherbys publish and distribute North’s range of Loss Prevention publications.
North has a unique collection of Loss Prevention Guides to provide ship operators and seafarers with the straightforward practical advice needed to deal with everyday operations and problems to reduce the risk of claims.
Witherbys currently publishes for a number of maritime industry bodies including BIMCO, Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) and the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO).
In addition, as part of the new collaboration, North’s publications will be available through Witherby Publishing’s eBook reader platform. Alvin Forster, North P&I Club’s Deputy Director of Loss Prevention, commented:
‘Witherbys are the leading publisher for the maritime industry and together, we will deliver publications that contain the most up to date content with guidance and details of best practice for our shipowner and charterer members and beyond.'
Iain Macneil, Witherby Publishing Group’s CEO, added:
‘We are delighted to be working with North and look forward to rolling out our first set of publications. North’s portfolio of publications is a welcome addition to our range of publications for the shipping industry.’
