Convoy System for Ship’s Protection

Convoy System for Ship’s Protection

Some experts are saying that the Red Sea attacks will need the vessels’ owners to bet on the only thing that will work, and that is the convoy system.

This was the system used when Somali piracy was a threat to shipping. The convoy system is a group of merchant ships sailing together for mutual protection and protected by heavily armed or naval ships. It will protect the cargo on ships sailing through treacherous waters. A convoy will typically have 60 merchant ships escorted by at least 2 destroyers and 4 corvettes.

The modern navies have missile defense ships and are expensive, but a worldwide recession will be worse for all so the value of adopting this approach could be a necessary evil stakeholders will have to contend with in the short term.
