1st May is the World Labor Day or International workers day. So, International chamber of shipping has launched a campaign worldwide knows as #heroesatseashoutout. In this ICS is urging all ships to blow their horn on 12:00 local time in their respective ports, if it is safe to do so. Many companies have joined this campaign.
The main idea is to thanks all the workers across the world for their contribution in these difficult times of Covid-19. Seafarers across the world are moving cargo all around the globe and also, port workers are working all round the clock to achieve this. As a token of appreciation, this small gesture is just to thank all of them.
