About Merchant Vessel Security

Neptune P2P Group has been providing armed merchant vessel security services and merchant shipping security since 2009. From every type of merchant vessel such as tugs, dry bulk, container ships, Ro Ro’s, and chemical carriers to oil tankers, we understand the distinctions and requirements associated with protecting each type of vessel through world-class merchant vessel security.

We employ armed vessel security guards positioned at strategic locations across the globe to ensure the flexibility required to provide merchant vessel security so that clients' crew and cargo maintain vessel protection whilst transiting through high-risk waters. We work closely with our clients to establish long-lasting relationships built on trust, reputation and assured protection.

Through our armed vessel security guard teams, transit risk assessments, merchant shipping security, vessel security assessments, intelligence reporting and alerts, we have ensured the safety and protection of over 7,500 transits since 2009 in the High-Risk Areas of the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa. Our vessel security and armed vessel security guards are vigorously vetted and receive specialised training to international standards. This ensures that the response to any merchant shipping security incident is dealt with swiftly, and effectively through vessel protection, and is conducted in accordance with international law. Our proprietary technology enables us to quickly respond to a client's requirements at short notice. This enables us to deploy a security team of experts you can trust to meet the requirements of your business and merchant vessel security needs, keeping you safe from piracy and other security-related threats. Our motto of ‘Prevention by Protection’ is at the core of our decision-making and is communicated throughout; from senior to middle management to our 24/7 operations and support teams to the vessel security service teams protecting our clients and their critical assets and reputation through effective vessel protection.

We are internationally recognised for our client-focused approach and our commitment to maritime security excellence.
