GNV, now part of the MSC Group, is one of the world’s leading shipping companies operating in cabotage and passenger transport

GENOA, Italy – February 20, 2024Everbridge, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM) and national public warning solutions, today announced the successful implementation of its Mass Notification solution at the Maritime Support Center of Grandi Navi Veloci (GNV), one of the main maritime companies based in Italy serving 19 ports in the Mediterranean.  Founded in 1992, GNV operates a fleet of 25 ships across 31 routes in 7 countries to and from Sardinia, Sicily, Spain, France, Albania, Tunisia, Morocco, and Malta.

As part of a strategic collaboration aimed at enhancing public safety and operational efficiency, GNV deployed the Everbridge mass notification suite into GNV’s Maritime Support Center. This implementation positions GNV at the forefront of maritime safety, leveraging the cutting-edge Everbridge technology to ensure swift and effective response during critical events.

With Everbridge, GNV is leveraging:

  • Automated Communication: The integration includes automated communication tools that enable the rapid dissemination of critical information to key stakeholders, both within the Maritime Support Center and externally.
  • Incident Management: The Everbridge platform facilitates efficient incident management, enabling the coordination of resources, communication, and response efforts to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of maritime operations.
  • Enhanced Resilience: Everbridge strengthens GNV’s resilience against various operational challenges, empowering the Maritime Support Center to proactively address incidents and minimize their impact.

“Everbridge gives us the ability to alert people immediately through various methods,” said Paolo Astarita, Chief Nautical Operations Officer of Grandi Navi Veloci. “At GNV, our 24/7 Maritime Support Center assists the fleet in all circumstances: at sea and in the ports we operate. Using Everbridge, we have established a number of models based on the level of severity of incidents. We have a large number of users both in the ports and colleagues here in the office. It is important that our entire team uses the notification system to help ensure safety on our shipping lanes.”

Continued Astarita, “The benefits of using Everbridge are time saving, because by setting a very basic template, you can immediately activate large numbers of people.  Also, we can actively manage the full emergency using Everbridge, including all the updates. It is managed automatically.”

“We are honored to collaborate with Grandi Navi Veloci in bolstering their maritime safety and response capabilities,” said Graeme Orsborn, Head of EMEA at Everbridge.  “Our Mass Notification solution is designed to provide organizations with the tools they need to manage critical events effectively, and when seconds matter. By integrating our technology into the GNV Maritime Support Center, we are collectively contributing to a safer and more resilient maritime industry.”
