About Intercargo Print E-mail
Intercargo is the short name for the International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners.

Our members operate predominantly Bulk Carriers in the international dry bulk trades, such as coal, grain, iron ore and other bulk commodities. Our main role is to work with our members, the regulators and other Shipping Associations to ensure that shipping operates safely, efficiently, environmentally and profitably. To do this, we actively participate in the development of global legislation through the International Maritime Organization and other similar bodies.
