Membership

The single most important factor in the shipping industry is the INDIVIDUAL.

Professionally qualified individuals are BETTER placed to make BETTER decisions on behalf of themselves, their companies and their clients. Professionalism couples a comprehensive understanding of one’s business gained through knowledge and qualification with trust and integrity.

ICS members combine the knowledge gained through study, proven through examination, with a business ethic based on “Our Word, Our Bond’ that imparts confidence into the industry worldwide. ICS members are shipping’s professionals.

The letters MICS and FICS do make a point of difference in a very difficult and ever changing service sector which remains dependent on the knowledge and trust of its key decision makers.  Governments across the world seek the ICS’ opinion on relevant shipping issues.
