With increased piracy risk in the Oceans, not only are many vessel owners requesting that firearms be sent to SA and loaded onto vessels whilst berthing in South African harbours, in some cases it is a basic requirement of the vessels insurance policy that they carry arms in certain international waters. This requires a process in which Capesecure has been successfully handling for some time now.
