Maritime Information Services of North America (MISNA) is a coalition of non-profit maritime information service organizations dedicated to providing information, communications and related services to ensure safe, secure, efficient and environmentally sound maritime operations. Established in 1995, MISNA represents the commercial maritime community's shared commitment to proactively address some of the challenges faced by the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, the Maritime Administration and other federal and state agencies and industry partners in a cooperative and cost efficient manner.


MISNA membership includes maritime exchanges and associations from throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. These organizations, several of which have been in existence well over 100 years, represent a broad cross section of maritime interests in their respective regions - vessel owners and agents, ports, pilots, towboat companies, stevedores and terminal operators, admiralty lawyers, custom brokers and freight forwarders, ship repair firms, employer associations, insurance agencies, marine surveyors, maritime union and oil spill response organizations, just to name a few. Collectively, over 8,000 private and public maritime businesses, agencies and associations are represented by MISNA members.
