Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors joins Shipping Australia

26 May 2021 3:07 PM | The Institute (Administrator)

The Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors has become a member of Shipping Australia.

Shipping Australia is an industry association that represents Australia’s international ocean shipping industries. They have 29 full members, which includes ocean shipping lines and shipping agents, with over 40 corporate associate members, which generally provide services to the maritime industry in Australia. These services include port and terminal operations, pilotage, insurance, and legal advice among other things. Australia imports and exports the equivalent of about 8 million twenty-foot ocean shipping containers a year. 

Shipping Australia members handle the vast majority of these containers. They also handle a considerable volume of our bulk commodities and vehicle import trades. Their members employ more than 3,000 Australians.

AIMS CEO Susan Hull says "We are excited to be a part of the SAL team and to work with them to provide additional benefits and services to members and the shipping industry. The opportunities for working together to improve shipping standards is something that we will embrace fully. We hope to contribute positively across the many areas of common interest and particularly in the cargo sector. The team at SAL, with their shipping expertise, combined with the specialised skills of the marine survey sector bodes well for the industry at large and we welcome this alliance and look forward to a future of mutual co-operation".

Shipping Australia CEO Melwyn Noronha commented, “We are delighted that the AIMS has decided to join Shipping Australia. Every new member adds to the strength of our association. The AIMS and its members bring additional skills, expert insight and marine surveying experience to Shipping Australia, which will be of benefit to all of our members. And, given the commonality of our interests in resolving the seafarer crisis, promoting safety and the protection of the marine environment, it is a natural fit. We look forward to engaging with the AIMS in a mutually beneficial relationship”.
