Dear Prospective Member,

On behalf of Gemini Shippers Association, our carrier partners, and over 250 member companies, I would like to thank you for considering membership in the association.

Since 1986, Gemini has been helping shippers navigate the complex world of ocean shipping procurement. Based on our strong carrier relationships, our deep understanding of our 15+ carrier partner networks, and the cumulative volumes of our members, Gemini can offer you competitive ocean freight rates on the carrier partner of your choice.

Gemini Shippers Association takes on the responsibility to negotiate the most competitive rates in the market on your behalf, while also assuming the significant financial exposure of signing the contract with the Carrier. While volumes carried via the association do not require you to sign an MQC, members do not need to use Gemini exclusively. Unlike working with a NVOCC, our carriers continue to interact directly with your team providing you status and recognition as an important customer

Once we have concluded rate agreements with your chosen carrier partners, your rate agreements, carrier information, and live up to date shipment tracking records will be available to you via your personalized Gemini Web Portal.

Our seasoned team of transportation executives in both the US and Asia will work with your carriers to manage day to day rates, space, EDI and cargo allocation issues. For more complex international trade issues, the association retains the services of Customs, International Trade and Transportation attorneys to guide our members. Members also receive valuable discounted service offers via numerous partner organizations.

Getting started with Gemini Shippers Association is easier than ever. Members complete a simple application form and sign a confidentiality agreement. Once you have joined the association, your appointed Gemini representative will contact you and follow up to move your shipments onto the Gemini Network.

Best of all, there is no up-front cost to join. Your member dues for shipments moved of $100 per container are added to your Bill of Lading and paid directly to the association by your carrier.

To get started, please fill in the attached application and confidentiality agreement and start to experience all the benefits of a Gemini Shippers Group membership. We look forward to working with your company.
