About the NSOCC

Since 1976, we have met annually with the aim of sharing knowledge and experience and developing best practice across areas, such as claims management, standard trading conditions, bills of lading terms and the handling of hazardous goods.

Each year the conference is kindly hosted by a NSOCC member in their home country, with recent conferences taking place in Helsinki, Oslo, Antwerp, Chatham, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Durham, Rotterdam, Hamburg and Palanga, and we always aim to keep the cost for attending this 'not for profit' conference affordable.
