Who We Are
Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) represents a wide spectrum of shipping companies and other businesses allied to the shipping industry. It is a national trade association formed in 1985 to serve and promote the interests of its members and to enhance the competitiveness of Singapore as an International Maritime Centre.
To achieve its objectives, SSA engages and collaborates with key stakeholders in the shipping industry and is a trusted advisor and partner to related government agencies. SSA is also actively involved in promoting the interests of Singapore’s shipping industry, internationally.
Currently, SSA represents over 485 member companies, comprising shipowners and operators, ship managers, ship agents, and other ancillary companies such as shipbrokers, classification societies, marine insurers, bunker suppliers, maritime lawyers, and shipping bankers amongst others.
To enhance the vibrancy and further grow the maritime ecosystem, the association has expanded its membership to include technology start-up companies, as part of its strategy to promote digitalisation within the industry.
