Within the realm of the KVNR, Dutch shipowners are united. This strong collaboration makes it possible to participate in crucial negotiations with one unified voice, in addition to communicating possible improvements to the business climate to politicians. Such strength in numbers is ultimately beneficial to the Dutch economy.
KVNR members come from a wide range of maritime sectors:
- General cargo;
- Ocean towage;
- Heavy lift.
In addition to its memberships for shipowners, the KVNR also offers the possibility to join as an associate member. The KVNR currently has about 100 associate members. This type of membership is intended for organisations and companies with a connection with the Dutch shipping industry, but do not own or operate vessels themselves. This includes educational institutions, insurers, ship brokers, banks and maritime law firms.
