Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

To become a member, we require that you are a young professional working in the London shipping industry. The above membership application procedure only applies to our target demographic (i.e. young shipping professionals).

 The SPNL was established to give shipping professionals in the early stages of their careers a platform for networking, knowledge expansion and professional development. We focus on young professionals as those who are more established professionals already tend to have both an established network and sufficient access to various specialist industry organisations and networking events.

For full-time students: As this is a network for young professionals, memberships for full-time students are limited. Should you regard yourself as a professional based on your shipping background, you are encouraged to provide details of your shipping background as motivation for membership. If successful, a decision will be made whether this is as an “ordinary member” or “extraordinary member”.

For part-time students: For those not currently or previously working in a shipping-related field, applicants need to motivate their eligibility (i.e. previous shipping background) to be regarded as a shipping professional in order to be eligible for membership.

Additional note to students: The final decision on whether an applicant qualifies as being eligible rests with the SPNL Board.
