About Us

The association was founded on 6th September 1968; before that, the shipping

business agencies has been regularly meeting up in Mei Yi Lim Restaurant at

Zhongshan North Road to maintain relationships, exchange business experience

and shipping information and discuss common problems. Therefore, those who

attended the meeting decided to found an industry trade association in

accordance with law in 1968. In 1974, we changed our name to Taipei Shipping

Agents Association according to the “Business Organization Separating Standard”

,and have been working on the promotion of shipping business, assistance to the

government’s relative policies, and maintenance of the industry’s benefits.

promote the association-related matters. The board is of 21 members, wherein 6

permanent board members and 1 chairman are elected; the chairman represents

the association and directs the association-related issues. The supervisors are of

7 members, wherein 1 permanent supervisor is elected to direct the supervising
