Commercial shipping, unfortunately, can unwittingly play a significant part in the transportation of illicit drugs to the places where they are consumed. The shipping industry therefore shares a collective responsibility to assist in combating this illegal traffic. This requires shipping companies, and ships’ crews, to be constantly aware of the possibility that ships, and the cargo they carry, may be used as a cover for drug smuggling.

This new Guide demonstrates how to protect the ship and the crew and reduce the risk of drug trafficking occurring on board

The sixth edition covers:

  • Key global trafficking routes
  • Ports and places commonly targeted by drug traffickers
