Then you click on Log-in menu at the top right and you follow the registration procedure. Your account details and uploaded documents will be evaluated and you you will be notified by mail when your company is active on iShipNet platform.

iShipNet categorizes the companies registered, to the online platform, according to each company's field of activities. Each company that registers to iShipNet, is required to upload it's company background, so that we can evaluate the new registration. If the company background uploaded, does not correspond to the company's profile type, the registration is rejected.

For example... if you are a Shipyard... you can not register with a Shipowner/Manager account type!

The tool that covers every need for communication or creation of new business relationships with companies that are related to the shipping industry.
