To date, over 350 shipowners have joined the KVNR, resulting in a membership comprising about 95% of Dutch shipowners. Altogether, Dutch shipowners manage around 1800 ships, more than 800 of which under Dutch flag.
The various types of vessels on the membershiplist are:
Dry bulk shipping
Ferry and cruise shipping
Liquid bulk shipping
Short sea shipping and sea-river shipping
Roll on roll off
Ocean Towage and salvage industry
Heavy lift transport
Besides the regular membership for shipowners, the KVNR provides the option to join as an associated member. To date there are around 100 associated members.
This type of membership is intended for organisations and companies affiliated with the shipping industry in the Netherlands but not managing vessels on their own. Associated members have more or less the same rights and obligations as members. The major difference being that they are not allowed to vote during the Annual General Meeting.
