Somali Pirates Zero - Houston Freight Co. Cheers for Good Guys

Posted on Wed, May 08, 2013

Two years ago,  news reports were posting numeous stories about Somali pirates capturing and holding both individuals and cargo hostage for ransom.  Due to arming of cargo ships, and the use of escorts that were armed, ship seizures have decreased dramatically during about the last year and a half.  Even better new.  A crew that was on a ship that was comondeered by the pirates has finally been freed.  Ransom was paid in this case.

The crew that had been  held for two years was released off the coast of Somalia.  There were 6 crew members who were finally released. The company that these crew members worked for has asked for privacy for the crew members and their families.


Shipping cargo safely had always been a goal for cargo shipping companies. Keeping personnel safe has taken safety to a much higher standard of operations. While armed escorts may add to the price of cargo shipping, it is worth the extra costs to ensure that both crew members and goods make it to destination ports safely.
