Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA Germany

WISTA Germany e.V. is one of the founding members, with the Netherlands and UK.  At these time, on 2 December 1974, a handful of women involved in the tanker market met for a Christmas lunch at the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in London UK.

The basis for becoming a worldwide network of  women in the shipping industry, as we know it today, was laid out there.
In 1981, the first conference of “Ladies in Shipping” took place in Hamburg. Further conferences took place in 1994 and 2005 in Hamburg. And now we have the honour to organize the International Conference in 2020, again in Hamburg.

With over 120 members spread across Germany  we are growing steadily. Our members represent all facets of the maritime industry, including shipowners, shipyards, charterers, operators, brokers, bankers, insurance professionals, classification sociaties, ship supplier, port authorities,  analysts, researcher and government officials.

WISTA Germany’s main goals are providing networking and educational opportunities for our members.

In pursuit of these objectives, we have periodic meetings, seminars, and social gatherings throughout the year. In addition, the WISTA Germany e.V. Annual General Member Meeting takes place each summer, and the International Conference, open to all WISTA members worldwide, takes place each fall. All of these events – whether local, regional, national, or international – provide tremendous networking and educational opportunities for our members and thereby enhance the benefits of membership in the organization.

WISTA Germany  e.V. works toward:

  • Minimizing the existing gender leadership gap in the maritime, trading and logistics sectors.
  • Building a community among its members, facilitating the exchange of contacts, information, and experiences
  • Promoting the creation of business relationships among its members
  • Facilitating the professional development of its members
  • Providing liaison with other related institutions and organizations worldwide

If this is a network that interests and inspires you then please contact us via the member inquiry. We will then inform you about the possibilities offered by membership with us.
