As of 11 October 2023, the New Zealand Shipping Federation has become a full member of the International Chamber of Shipping. Prior to this, NZSF was an affiliate member.
The International Chamber of Shipping is at the forefront of advocacy on issues impacting our industry. It’s important that we are at the table, working on solutions before they impact New Zealand.
The move from affiliate to full membership will enhance collaboration between the ICS and NZSF who can now participate at all committees and be able to participate at the ICS Board. This will increase the geographical spread of the ICS Board members which will help to ensure a balanced view of the international shipping landscape, so that the ICS can shape the future of shipping as the industry works together to find solutions to collective issues including piracy, seafarer welfare and training, digitisation, and decarbonisation.
