The Benefits of Being a Member

The strength of RSI lies in the collective action taken by its members. By joining RSI, members become an active part in working towards making dry cargo shipping more sustainable.

1. Database and Knowledge Sharing

Access to the common database enables RSI’s members to share knowledge, information and insight into good standards and practices performed by vessel carriers. Therefore, one of the benefits of becoming a member is the ability to make well-informed decisions when choosing suppliers for dry cargo transports.

2. Factual Evaluation

By setting a clear and coherent standard, RSI creates a level playing field for all actors involved. Furthermore, vessel carriers that achieve and maintain high quality standards receive deserved recognition.

3. Time and Resource Efficiency

Performing collective inspections is both time and resource efficient. This is due to the simple fact that more vessels can be included for inspection and in doing so, RSI can ensure a greater impact of its efforts.

Our Members

RSI consists of companies that transport goods by dry cargo vessels within the North and Baltic Sea areas.

Working together with other members of RSI is a way for us to use our collective influence to drive positive change in the shipping industry regarding various aspects of sustainability.

Working together is resource-efficient for everyone involved: inspectors, RSI members and vessel operators. It is a win-win situation.

”RSI enables sustainability in the supply chain of SSAB. Together we can make a difference and add value to our stakeholders.”

The transparent approach of RSI is crucial and by sharing knowledge among members this makes it possible for Stockholm Exergi to improve our supply chain management.

Being a buyer of dry cargo ship transports, Södra considers it to be our responsibility to improve conditions within the shipping sector. We make that happen with the RSI.

RSI enables us to take our sustainability work one step further within the dry cargo shipping industry. Together we can drive a positive change for a sustainable future.
