On this date, the SCT calls on the authorities, whose competence comes together in the port, to redouble efforts in institutional coordination and collaboration, with the aim of offering timely attention to maritime transport and providing seafarers with alternatives for the development of their work, in the best conditions.

In these times, the seafarers showed their solidarity by speeding up the flow of procedures for the access of ships to the port, the change of crews, repatriation, refueling, repairs, inspections, certifications, among other aspects, to carry Humanitarian Bridges held.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO), of which Mexico is a part, celebrates this June 25 the “International Day of Seafarers”, with the campaign “Seafarers are key workers” and with the hashtag #SeafarersAreKeyWorkers, to highlight the importance of the activities of the personnel on board the vessels that deal with maritime trade.

The concept of seafarers refers to civilian personnel, merchant seamen and, in general, to any person who performs a job on a vessel.

The SCT pays tribute to the crews for the many sacrifices and problems they face, which makes it possible to navigate in an environmentally friendly way, for the transfer of people and various goods that society requires.
