Hudson Finds Creative Solutions

Another WIN for HUDSON and its CLIENT . . . . . A BIG LOSS for the PIRATES!

Almost 3 years ago, a Hudson client had its goods stolen aboard a pirated vessel that was eventually located off the coast of China. Eventually, the local maritime court became involved and after some careful maneuvering (despite repeated threats by the pirates) an arrest warrant was issued, and a 2-year standoff ensued.

As the situation became more desperate, Hudson entered the fray in an effort to formulate a customized, out of the box and comprehensive solution to the fragile impasse and rescue and deliver the goods to its valued client.

“Hudson specializes in finding solutions for difficult problems/projects that other companies flee from”

Within weeks of getting involved, Hudson was able to develop and facilitate a multi-faceted plan which was quickly approved by the Chinese Maritime Safety Administration (MSA) and the Ningbo Maritime Court and involved Hudson spearheading cooperation among the pirates, the client (and its insurer), the head owner of the pirated vessel and local authorities.

The approved plan involved Hudson first bringing a substitute vessel to a specially designated location (secured by 400 armed police). A complicated “ship to ship” transfer of the goods was then performed using a multiple crane barge so that the goods could safely be transported to the rightful destination.

Hudson approaches problems as opportunities to prove our first-class, logistical capabilities and further our relationship and trust with customers.
Hudson wishes to acknowledge and give a SPECIAL THANK YOU to the NINGBO MARITIME COURT whose oversight and cooperation was instrumental in our success!
