IMPA Codes

ShipServ LogoIMPA (International Marine Purchasing Association) was formed in 1978 by a group of senior purchasing executives who wanted to create an industry ‘voice’ to represent the interests of the purchasing profession within shipping and promote close cooperation and understanding between buyer and supplier.

Over the past four decades, the association has grown significantly and now represents close to 1000 members from across the world; ship-owners, -operators and -managers account for purchaser members and manufacturers and ship suppliers make up supplier members.
