This year has been one of the most challenging year in all our lives both personally and professionally.
The impact of the pandemic is huge and it is almost impossible not to notice any impact as a direct result of the situation and indirect result of the preventive measures being taken by all parties. As a business EBU has had to be flexible and adaptable in a very disrupted world, to meet our commitments with our customers.
Your and our industry, are vital in many ways for keeping the global supply chain going and uninterrupted. On board, our seafarers are far away from home and visit countries not knowing what to expect. They cannot work from home or take care of their families. We have deep respect for them and we hope, that like all of us, they will stay healthy. Yet to mention the entire shore (office) staffs as one of the frontlines to ensure the seafarers are onboard safely, your effort and dedication throughout the pandemic has been impressive.
As we draw to the close of the year let us look forward to more positive years when we can once again meet up without fear of spreading or catching the virus and life can return to a new normal. Let’s have understanding and take care of each other, stay in contact and healthy.
I would like to thank each and every one of you for your cooperation, commitment and loyalty during these challenges period.
Sending you the warmest greetings and warmest wishes this holiday season. Let’s look forward to a happier 2021!
