How can Dark Shipping detection be used?
Avoid sanctions evasion
Sanctions evasion tactics comprise everything from dark ship-to-ship (STS) transfers at sea to unmonitored and unreported port calls for illicit trade - most often involving oil, liquified natural gas (LNG), and military equipment.
Detect illegal fishing
IUU fishing activities violate national and international law, threaten food security, undermine conservation efforts, and put legally operating and sustainable fisheries at an economic disadvantage.
Fight human trafficking
Human trafficking networks facilitate migrant smuggling, forced or low-wage labor, terrorist activities, and much more.
Monitor environmental impact
Dark shipping wreaks havoc on marine ecosystems, natural resources, and biological populations - affecting everything from conservation efforts to migration patterns of marine animals.
Protect your borders
Dark shipping can threaten thousands of miles of coastlines that need ongoing monitoring, defense, and protection.
