Four influential maritime organisations have given their whole-hearted support to the Maritime, Logistics and Energy (MLE) thematic in the forthcoming International Festival for Business being held in Liverpool this June and July. The four supporting organisations are the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA); Women In Shipping Trade Association – UK (WISTA-UK), Tyndall Manchester and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

Welcoming their support, Llewellyn Bankes Hughes of Shipping Innovation, MLE co-organiser, said: “Backing from these four membership associations is an important boost for this important series of maritime events. We look forward to welcoming their members to the exciting MLE events.”

IBIA has a worldwide membership comprising shipowners, charterers, bunker suppliers, traders, brokers, barging and storage companies, surveyors, port authorities, credit reporting companies, lawyers, P&I clubs, equipment manufacturers, shipping journalists and marine consultants.

Founded in 1974, WISTA-UK is part of the global Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA) and provides networking, education and mentoring to enhance the competence of women in the maritime sector and empower career success.

Tyndall Manchester is primarily based in Manchester University’s School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, but has close affiliations with the School of Environmental, Atmospheric and Earth Sciences, the Sustainable Consumption Institute, and Manchester Business School. It has a vibrant and committed research community that brings together scientists, engineers, social scientists and economists, providing considerable and diverse academic expertise on all aspects of energy and climate change. Tyndall Manchester also undertakes external consultancy projects and offers postgraduate supervision and other opportunities for early career researchers.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK – CILT (UK) – is the professional body for businesses involved with logistics, the supply chain and transport.
