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, while improving overall maritime safety standards in the industry.

Signifying the importance of a transition to a low-carbon economy, RightShip’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Rating (GHG Rating) has been widely adopted by the maritime industry to measure and recognise the relative CO2 output of individual vessels.

The GHG Rating provides a systematic and transparent framework for comparing the relative efficiency of ships, enabling users to select vessels with a lower CO2 footprint and fuel bill.

RightShip is a proud carbon-neutral organisation, and in 2017 released their Carbon Accounting tool, giving organisations the ability to measure and manage the carbon emissions associated with their shipping activity.





RightShip (“the company”) is equally owned by BHP, Rio Tinto and Cargill.

RightShip was formed in 2001 to improve dry bulk safety and quality standards and draw on the significant ship vetting expertise of global commodity companies BHP and Rio Tinto. In 2006, international food, agriculture and risk management company Cargill joined as an equal equity partner.

Responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the company resides with the CEO and management team, who in turn report to a 6-member board of directors nominated by the shareholders. The chairmanship of the board is rotated every two years between the six directors. Rashpal Bhatti (BHP) is the current Chair of RightShip.

Quality control is an integral part of RightShip’s Management System and as such DNV GL has certified RightShip to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards.



RightShip is proud to be certified by TRACE, the world’s leading anti-bribery standard setting organisation. This signifies that RightShip has completed internationally accepted due diligence procedures and has been forthcoming and cooperative during the review process.

The successful completion of TRACE Certification demonstrates a commitment to commercial transparency, allowing RightShip to serve as a valued business partner to multinational companies.

Join the team committed to a safe and sustainable maritime future

Between 1988 and 1991, nearly 100 seafarers were lost on large bulk carriers, mostly off the coast of Western Australia. These tragic events were the result of avoidable practices.

Our organisation was built to respond to a pressing need for operational improvements in the maritime industry. We are committed to setting an industry standard that all maritime workers can commit to.

We do this through RightShip’s own crew, made up of maritime experts including captains, chief engineers and classification inspectors, as well as data specialists who lead the way in data housing, algorithm design and software development. We are always looking to bring brilliant people on board to help us build an open, collaborative and caring culture.

RightShip is comprised of people from a diverse range of backgrounds, located in Australia, Singapore, the US and Europe. We have a shared passion for creating meaningful and long-lasting change in the maritime industry.

Many members of our team have first-hand experience working at all levels of the supply chain and use that knowledge to deliver on our goals to reduce safety incidents and improve sustainability in shipping’s global operations.

We work hard, but we also ensure we bring our teams together regularly to socialise and boost solidarity.
