Shipbrokers Finland and numerous other organisations will invite all their member companies, shipowners, managers, port operators and any relevant national stakeholder to encourage ships captains to sound their horns when in port at 12.00 local on 1st May 2020.
1st May is recognised in many countries around the world as International Workers’ Day, Workers’ Day, Labour Day or May Day. This is a day which is used to celebrate and recognise the contribution made by workers across the world.
At this difficult time for the world we want to ensure that the contribution made by seafarers is not forgotten. Therefore, we want to encourage as many ships as possible across the world, who are in a port or harbour, to sound their horns (as is safe to do so) at 12.00 local time on 1st May 2020.
