As an independent, international, professional membership organisation, the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers offers a world-class programme of education and training to ensure that all members are knowledgeable about their business. To help this process, the Institute produces and publishes a comprehensive series of books on the shipping business.

The books are unique in that they have been written by professionals for professionals in the shipping industry. They undergo a regular periodic review where they are peer-reviewed, revised and updated by professionals in their particular discipline so that an accurate revision can be achieved.

Up-to-date information has been sourced from leading shipping research providers to illustrate graphs, charts and tables. Trade routes and ship drawings have been produced in-house, while talented designers and proofreaders have been employed to ensure the highest level of appearance and consistency in the books.

Members and registered students receive a discount on all books.

If you are a student or a member, you can order books directly through your personal account online at www.shipbrokers.org. Alternatively, you can place an order by sending a completed book order form to enquiries@ics.org.uk.
