Chapter Summary

The International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners (Intercargo) has the objective of promoting and protecting the interests of private, independent owners in the dry cargo sector of the shipping industry. Intercargo presents and communicates industry concerns to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS), and the European Commission to ensure that the regulation of shipping is done in a manner that is both effective and efficient, with the belief that the shipping industry should operate in a safe and equitable manner with due regard for high quality standards. The main source of financing for Intercargo is through membership fees with additional funding through the sale of publications. Intercargo's focus in the transnational economic governance of the shipping industry is to ensure a common set of rules to be applied globally.
