About Caribbean Maritime

Caribbean Maritime (CM) is the Official Journal of the Caribbean Shipping Association (CSA), the voice of the Caribbean shipping industry and is available in hard copy, online (across all platforms) and on a subscription basis - free of charge.

CM was launched in 2007 in conjunction with UK publisher Land & Marine Publications Ltd and is published three times each year in January, May and October to coincide with the CSA meetings.

As well as its subscribers, Caribbean Maritime is distributed to all delegates attending the Caribbean Shipping Association’s biannual conferences.
