The Club is a member of the International Group of P&I Clubs, a collective of thirteen mutuals which together provide Protection and Indemnity insurance for some 90% of all world shipping. Protection and Indemnity insurance (commonly referred to as “P&I”) provides cover to shipowners and charterers against third-party liabilities encountered in their commercial operations. Responsibility for damage to cargo, for pollution, for the death, injury or illness of passengers or crew and for damage to docks and other installations are examples of typical exposures. Running in parallel with a ship’s hull and machinery cover, traditional P&I such as that offered by the American Club distinguishes itself from ordinary forms of marine insurance by being based on the not-for-profit principle of mutuality where Members of the Club are both the insurers and the assureds.

With our predictive online ship vetting platform, RightShip Qi, coupled with the maritime expertise of our vetting team, we help our customers to manage marine risk by identifying and eliminating substandard ships from their supply chain. RightShip was formed to improve dry bulk safety and quality standards and draw on the significant ship vetting expertise of global commodity companies, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto.

In 2006, international food, agriculture and risk management company Cargill joined as an equal equity partner. Today, RightShip also provides vetting services and OCIMF SIRE inspections to the petroleum, chemical and gas sectors. RightShip is focused on helping industry avoid preventable incidents, while reducing the carbon dioxide emissions emitted by the world marine fleet. We do this by condensing information, providing rapid and consistent analysis and advice, monitoring and complying with international standards, and bringing expert support and advice within the reach of even the smallest business.
