The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) is expanding with two new member associations from Luxembourg and Brazil.

The ICS’ board has approved FEDIL Shipping, Luxembourg and the Brazilian Association of Cabotage Owners becoming affiliate member national associations. Their membership is effective from 1 March this year.

“We are delighted to welcome Luxembourg and Brazil into the ICS family. Our industry is changing and as it continues to evolve we are facing significant challenges and opportunities ahead,” commented Guy Platten, Secretary General of ICS.

“Working together allows for collective solutions that will aid the industry to tackle important issues such as decarbonisation, seafarers’ training and welfare, and digitalisation.”

The ICS now has member shipowners’ associations from 41 countries and territories. China Shipowners’ Association became a full member at the start of the year.
