The Puerto Rico Shipping Association was founded in 1970. Following its inception, the association has grown to comprise a group of 32 companies dedicated to numerous sectors of the maritime business.
Its tasks have expanded to include the representation of its membership in various socio-economic forums, as well as acting as a clearing house for numerous maritime-related initiatives.
During the past several years, the association has focused on improving port productivity, reducing operating costs and maintaining San Juan as the premier cruise ship home port in the Caribbean.
The PRSA''s provide a forum for discussion on legislation, tourism development, ports, safety, security and other maritime industry issues.
