Exporters Competitive Maritime Council (ECMC)

About ECMC

What is ECMC?

The Exporters Competitive Maritime Council (ECMC) is an alliance of project cargo industry representatives working together to support, foster, and maintain the competitive advantage of U.S. domiciled companies in international trade through participation in and development of key initiatives. It represent the interests of United States exporters with respect to project cargo, export trade, transportation and regulatory issues.

Who are the officers of ECMC?

You’ll notice that all of ECMC’s officers are actively involved in Breakbulk Americas. This year—like last year—ECMC members will lead the Education Day students through a tour of the exhibition hall, stopping to talk with exhibitors and explain to students how breakbulk sectors work together. ECMC is also the co-host for this important offering for students and others looking to enter the field of project cargo and breakbulk.
