KVNR – Netherlands
The KVNR will proactively represent the interest of its members in the national and international playing field. The shipowners association represents the Dutch shipowners in a number of national and international bodies, at EU and at global level. In this way the KVNR is actively involved in policymaking in national, European and global maritime politics. The objective is to maintain and improve the economic, social, environmental and nautical/technical aspects of the (inter)national business climate.
Besides collective representation, offering individual service and advice to its members is at least as important to the KVNR. Expert and experienced KVNR members of staff are able to advise shipowners on any and all relevant subjects. In short, members will have access to invaluable knowledge, experience and best practices accrued over many years.
