Established in 1938, the Shipping Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT)represents the interests of key industry stakeholders such as shipping agents, ship owners and/or ship operators, ship brokers, freight forwarders, ports and terminals, and NVOCCs, among others. Some of the members include long-standing Agents and entities such as Gordon Grant & Company Limited, Gulf Shipping, Seaboard (Trinidad) Ltd, NEC, BPTT, and both container ports – PLIPDECO and PPOS, T & T Marine Pilots Association.
SATT’s principal objectives include:
- Lobby and advocacy in maritime-related matters,
- Representing members’ interests to the industry’s regulators,
- Facilitating interaction between members and these entities to influence key efficiencies vital to SATT, trade facilitation and industry reform.
The Association remains committed to strengthening the position of its members in the marketplace, and promoting capacity-building initiatives. We have since adopted a new membership structure to more strategically respond to the challenges plaguing the industry, and to enable more rapid change and transformation. SATT will continue to evolve to ensure that it remains relevant to its diverse membership in an ever-challenging environment.
