Continuous improvement in the tanker industry

Continuous improvement is the main theme running through INTERTANKO’s Annual Review and Report for 2004, which is published this week on our website   

Continuous improvement in operation - continuous improvement in construction and maintenance - continuous improvement in relationships with the world at large. 

The Association’s Chairman and Managing Director reiterate a clear vision for a tanker industry that is responsible, sustainable, respected; outline the industry’s thrust towards improvement; examine the Association’s efforts to achieve constructive and workable regulations. 

We also look forward at what are likely to be the significant advances, developments and improvements of 2005. And INTERTANKO’s Research Manager Erik Ranheim looks at the state of the industry in the tanker markets.  

IMO Secretary-General Thimio Mitropoulos writes about the pressures on the tanker industry from political solutions that may not always be based solely on sound technical arguments supported by proper research and analysis … and about restoring the politicians’ faith in the industry’s own ability to pay proper heed to international standards. 

Reports from the Association’s indispensable committees and regional panels … full details of our governing bodies … lists of members and their fleets … and a full run-down of the Secretariat and who does what.   

Hard copies of the Report will be available at the Athens Tanker Event 10-13 April, and will also be mailed to all members, associate members and media.
