Round Table of International Shipping Associations
To press for a unified Industry voice in the creation of Industry policy and strategy, Intercargo strongly supports the concept of the Round Table. The three other organisations represented in the Round Table are:
The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) whose membership comprises of the shipowners' associations from over 40 countries; ISF - the International Shipping Federation, whose secretariat is provided by the ICS, is the international employers association for shipping companies; BIMCO, whose membership comprises of owners, brokers, ships agents and other operators; and Intertanko, the association for independent tanker owners. Intercargo and Intertanko have formed a single secretariat structure within the same office which results in improved representation for members in both the wet and dry bulk sectors.
