Our International Network
With 25 branches and 16 distance
learning centres around the world, the members of ICS are part
of an internationally recognised network of shipping professionals
who not only work towards high professional ethical standards of
trust, but who also have proven knowledge, competence and
understanding of the broad spectrum of shipping business.
In such a global business, shipping often means moving from
country to country, however, as a member of ICS boundaries melt and
become invisible. No matter which branch a member belongs to, they
are encouraged to participate in the activities of the whole branch
Branch events, courses, seminars and training sessions are open
to all members across the world. Spreading 'good practice'
throughout the network, and therefore the industry, is a key ICS
ICS is working to add value to the existing activities of all
its branches. In 2006, for example, the individual seminar
programmes across India, Dubai, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Liverpool
were linked by theme and objectives.
The ICS website is also another portal to the network with a
dedicated members' area. This allows members to search for contacts
and companies, as well as access specialist industry
Shipping Network, the ICS journal, is another expression of the
network and information sharing.
