Abstract :

Abstract Following reports regarding the ravaging impact of the novel Coronavirus, the International Maritime Organization have made efforts by urging flag state authorities to adopt certain precautionary measures so as to ensure minimal disruption of shipping activities. However, the measures imposed are making it challenging for stakeholders in the shipping industry to fulfill their contractual obligations. As such, this paper makes an examination of the impact of the Covid-19 on the shipping sector. Also, it discusses some relevant issues that may be vital in charting a course for the post covid-19 era. This paper holds that where these steps are being adopted, the shipping industry will be on its way to a prolonged sustenance. Keywords: Covid-19, Shippers, Maritime
