Chamber of Shipping of America

The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) represents U.S. based companies that either own, operate or charter oceangoing tank, container, or dry bulk vessels engaged in both the domestic and international trades and companies that maintain a commercial interest in the operation of such oceangoing vessels. Current members include companies that own or operate U.S. flag or foreign-flag vessels.

A company owning or operating only foreign-flag tonnage must have an office in the United States to qualify for membership.



The Chamber of Shipping of America will be recognized as the definitive organization representing owners, operators, and charterers of U.S. and foreign flag ocean going vessels, before U.S. and international regulatory, legislative and administrative entities as well as the public at large.
