The Swedish Club's Trade Enabling Loss Prevention (TELP) programme is a free service for our Club members to increase safety awareness in specific areas and ports worldwide and thereby reduce claims.
What is Trade Enabling Loss Prevention, and how does it actually work?
Our mission is to enable you to trade – we are here to help you. The Swedish Club’s Trade Enabling Loss Prevention programme, TELP, combines technology with years of claims experience, helping your vessels safely chart their way through high-risk areas around the globe.
With many thousands of ports and waterways to navigate, often varying from voyage to voyage, it is not easy for a Master to be aware of all potential high-risk areas. A port known for difficulties with pilotage or towage: a centre for unfounded claims or dubious charges; an approach channel with navigational challenges; or a location known for an unusual high number of groundings or collisions – any of these ‘hotspots’ could be encountered during what should be an uneventful journey.
Through TELP, The Swedish Club now has the capacity to provide Loss Prevention advice proactively for your vessel type and your destination. We can track every vessel we insure, match this information with our own statistics and records, and provide members and their vessels with timely, tailored advice when approaching high-risk areas.
If your vessel is bound for a Hotspot, you will receive loss prevention advice. Based on AIS transmissions, we identify vessels bound for a Hotspot. A few days before arrival, a message with loss prevention advice relevant for that Hotspot is sent to the vessel via your shore organisation.

Our correspondents constantly provide us with information and updates on local conditions, e.g. health issues, disruptions in a port's cargo handling or specific navigational warnings. TELP enables us to automatically share this essential information with you through our Correspondent’s advice.
