PRESIDENT'S WELCOME NOTE

Through the pages of this website that represents the International Boatmen’s Linesmen’s Association (IBLA), you will get in touch with worldwide companies who work on mooring/boatmen services with dedication and professionalism in the ports all over the world.

 

The intent of this website is to let all the visitors know about us, who we are and how we work. You will find different workplace scenarios where the companies (port operators)  carry out the operations and the services they do, with the same professionalism and passion, for this reason they can be considered colleagues. 

By these pages you will have a complete idea about the professionalism and the skill of our employees, the high quality of our nautical-terrestrial vehicles and our several sectors of competence: mooring, dropping, hauling, additional crew, anti pollution, cruise ships shuttle service and more.

 

The association has no union aspiration and never will and it does not interfere in the management operations of each single member company.

 

The purpose of the IBLA was and still is to establish a good and fruitful communication between all the partners to exchange technical-nautical information, experience and problems, in order to improve and enhance the knowledge, the service’s quality and as well to insure the safety of life and property at sea, including the ships, the port infrastructures, the boatmen and the passengers. Too many times because of an unappropriate training, knowledge, specialization and lack of certifications all around the world we see accidents in the sea, ports, between ships, sinkings and most of the times it’s a human error.

 

Goal of IBLA is as well to be recognized, one day not so far, as a member of the International Maritime Association (IMO), in order to  cooperate with all the countries representated and establiish a straight guideline for the STANDARDS that the personnel envolved in mooring, unmooring operations and boatmen services has to follow; by this way all the staffs working in the ports, on the ships, will have a rright & straight training that give them not only the certifications but first of all the right knowledge, experience and professionalism to keep safe ports, infrastructures, ships and of course passengers. 

 

Do not hesitate to contact us; we will establish a friendly and worthy relationship which will enhance our knowledge and the quality of our services.

 

 

Enjoy It!

 

The President 

Marco Mandirola
