We have your back

The almost limitless flow of information makes it increasingly difficult to distinguish between genuine risk and collective sensationalism. In many instances the true nature of risk is misunderstood, leading to potentially significant impacts upon commercial operations.  

The maritime industry faces significant and dynamic threats in many parts of the world. Your planning processes require you to juggle and prioritise information from multiple sources quickly, understanding and processing regional, contextual and emergent events. Missing information or making the wrong assumption about a routing could have serious commercial consequences.

Dryad Global can offer you the assurance that our BMP 5 and ISGOTT 6 compliant Transit Risk Assessment product will safeguard you against making miscalculated decisions, save you valuable time and ensure the most economically financial route is selected.

Transit Risk Assessment 

Our Transit Risk Assessments are a highly detailed route and port access risk analysis. It provides you with the context, current threats to maritime security and recommendations to operate in as safe and commercially viable manner as possible. Human analytical power goes into every one of our assessments looking into the specific threat profile to your people and assets.


Automated online risk systems will claim to use machine learning to provide a forward looking voyage risk assessment. However these systems only provide a quantitative risk rating based on historical event trends and fall significantly short of BMP5 and ISGOTT6 compliance. Solely relying on computer generated risk analysis may leave a company legally exposed, if due diligence and accountability during the planning phase haven’t been fully considered. 


When operating throughout regions, with often complex security dynamics, Dryad Global strongly recommend the use of a bespoke Transit Risk Assessment. The Safety of Life at Sea for all crew members and the protection of assets takes absolute priority. It is for that reason Dryad Global offers clients an industry leading Risk Assessment service operated by real people contactable 24/7. 


We at Dryad Global offer our clients focused and attentive individual expertise. Whilst we aim to harness the power of risk analysis tools that rely on machine learning and AI, these are a long way off being able to replace the vital human expertise that underpins our analytical output. 

Your Transit Risk Assessment 

Each assessment is created based on the unique parameters of the vessel and voyage plan. It is cross referenced against the latest global intelligence reporting, historical and contextual data, weather patterns and routing nuances to provide an industry leading transit risk assessment.  


If your decision point is imminent due to a chartering decision, we will work with you to meet your deadlines as needed.
