The international ship managers’ body, InterManager, has extended its global membership by welcoming four new members, including The Marshall Islands Ship Registry.


Intelligence firm Africa Risk Compliance (ARC) expertise lie in the provision maritime security services in the West of Africa. The intelligence services ARC offer stems from recognising the need for an organisation to take a role in a region that is seen as challenging and where the international shipping community suffers from a lack of information.

As we welcome our first ship registry member it is a reminder that by working as a multi-sector Association, together we can ensure a rich sustainable industry for generations to come. We look forward to working closely with our three new members.”


“We are delighted to be part of this quality ship manager’s trade association. As the Marshall Islands grow in popularity as a ship registry, we want to forge a closer relationship with InterManager and its members. We look forward to working together on issues which affect our members and the maritime industry more widely,” said John Ramage, Chief Operating Officer, International Registries [Marshall Island Ship Registry support company].


Looking forward to future involvement, Max Williams, Fleet Operations Director, ARC said: “At a time of global high security alert, maritime security intelligence is crucial. By working with organisations to keep clients well-briefed, we are building a robust network. Joining InterManager will allow us to share expertise with ship managers and to build a sustainable network to ensure the industry is safe.”
