The International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners (INTERCARGO) is representing the interests of quality dry cargo shipowners. INTERCARGO convened for the first time in 1980 in London and has been participating with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) since 1993.
INTERCARGO provides the forum where dry bulk shipowners, managers and operators are informed about, discuss and share concerns on key topics and regulatory challenges, especially in relation to safety, the environment and operational excellence.
The Association takes forward its Members’ positions to the IMO, as well as to other shipping and international industry fora, having free and fair competition as a principle.
INTERCARGO is committed to safety and quality in ship operations, with a focus on operational efficiency and the protection of the marine environment.
INTERCARGO encourages the adoption of a zero tolerance policy regarding illegal wildlife trade and would also support in its capacity:
information sharing and detection
practical measures to stop the transportation of illegal wildlife product
new mechanisms tackling illegal wildlife trade
