Membership benefits

Benefits thumbs up There is absolutely no doubt that belonging to a professional body helps you gain a competitive advantage, and in an industry as dynamic and competitive as commercial shipping, the benefit of demonstrating your commitment to professionalism and your up to date knowledge quite simply cannot be overstated.

The letters MICS offer a point of difference in our difficult and ever changing environment.  However, beyond these intrinsic benefits, the Institute offers a range of services to support its members.

All our members get quarterly a copy of the professional magazine Shipping Network.
