The Association of Rotterdam Shipbrokers and Agents (VRC) is engaged in monitoring and protecting the common interests of ship brokers and agents in the port area.
In addition, the combined expertise of both the ‘active’ members as the ‘knowledge-intensive’ associate members is used. In all kinds of relationships; on topical issues; both short and long term. The VRC is thus a key player when it comes to the quality and future of the Port of Rotterdam.
BIMCO is a shipping association providing a wide range of services to its global membership of stakeholders who have vested interests in the shipping industry, including shipowners, operators, managers, brokers and agents.
The association’s main objective is to facilitate the commercial operations of its membership by means of developing standard contracts and clauses, and providing quality information, advice, and education.
The introduction of the Authorised Economic Operator status resulted in Customs making a distinction between two categories of goods flows:
- goods from certified enterprises, and
- goods from non-certified enterprises
Customs offers specific facilities to certified enterprises.
The Royal Belgian Shipowners’ Association was founded in 1909. Almost all shipowners operating vessels under the Belgian flag are RBSA members.
Their mission is:
to defend the common interests of all shipowners under the Belgian flag,
and to represent them in dealing with the authorities and the social partners.
