Introduction

INTERCARGO is the short name for the International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners.

It was established in 1980 with the objective of giving a voice to shipowners, managers and operators of dry cargo vessels and represent better this shipping sector. The power of INTERCARGO, like its partner shipping associations, is that collectively, it is possible to change bulk carrier industry for the better in a world where one bulk carrier shipowner acting on its own finds it most difficult to make itself heard and facilitate progress.

INTERCARGO works closely with the other international maritime associations – BIMCO, INTERTANKO and the International Chamber of Shipping who, together with INTERCARGO, comprise the Round Table of International Shipping Associations. The aim of the Round Table is to maximise the benefit to members and to avoid costly and inefficient duplication of activity. We believe that this strategy of working together is in the best interests of our collective memberships.

Our Members commit to a safe, efficient, high quality and environmentally-friendly dry cargo shipping industry. INTERCARGO considers that free and fair competition in the shipping industry is of fundamental importance and this serves as its prime principle.  INTERCARGO aims to create strategies to enhance the interests of its Members for the benefit of the dry cargo shipping as a whole.
