Everbridge, a developer of critical event management (CEM) and national public warning solutions, has implemented its mass notification solution at Grandi Navi Veloci’s (GNV) maritime support centre.

Founded in 1992, MSC subsidiary GNV operates 25 ships across 31 routes in seven countries, including Sardinia, Sicily, Spain, France, Albania, Tunisia, Morocco, and Malta.

As part of a collaboration strategy aimed at enhancing public safety and operational efficiency, GNV deployed the Everbridge mass notification suite in its support Centre to ensure swift and effective response during critical events.

With Everbridge, GNV is leveraging:

  • Automated Communication – The integration includes automated communication tools that enable the rapid dissemination of critical information to key stakeholders, both within the centre and externally.
  • Incident Management: The Everbridge platform facilitates efficient incident management, enabling the co-ordination of resources, communication, and response efforts to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of maritime operations.
  • Enhanced Resilience: Everbridge strengthens GNV’s resilience against various operational challenges, to enable the centre to pro-actively address incidents and minimise their impact.

“Everbridge gives us the ability to alert people immediately through various methods,” said Paolo Astarita, GNV’s Chief Nautical Operations Officer. “At GNV, our 24/7 Maritime Support Centre assists the fleet in all circumstances: at sea and in the ports we operate.

“Using Everbridge, we have established a number of models based on the level of severity of incidents. We have a large number of users both in the ports and colleagues here in the office. It is important that our entire team uses the notification system to help ensure safety on our shipping lanes.

“The benefits of using Everbridge are time saving, because by setting a very basic template, you can immediately activate large numbers of people.  Also, we can actively manage the full emergency using Everbridge, including all the updates. It is managed automatically,” he said.

“We are honoured to collaborate with Grandi Navi Veloci in bolstering their maritime safety and response capabilities,” added Graeme Orsborn, Head of EMEA at Everbridge.

“Our mass notification solution is designed to provide organisations with the tools they need to manage critical events effectively, and when seconds matter.

“By integrating our technology into the GNV Maritime Support Centre, we are collectively contributing to a safer and more resilient maritime industry,” he said.
