The security for a tug and towage operation is unique to the maritime security industry. this is the type of operation that really emphasizes the there is no "One Size Fits All" in the security field. Usually this type of transit travels at a very low speed (5 - 7 knots) and the towed asset is far behind (500 - 700 meters) making it a very high risk transit operation.
Recently, a tug was hijacked in the South China Sea, and yesterday located in the Southern Philippines. This gives added awareness that the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean regions are not the only high risk areas.
