Enabling innovation through standardisation

Our vision & mission

At DCSA, we envisage a digitally interconnected container shipping industry in which customers have a choice of seamless, easy-to-use services that provide the flexibility to meet their business and sustainability goals.

DCSA’s mission is to drive technology standards and frameworks that will enable carriers to bring innovative solutions to market. Leveraging DCSA standards will improve a carrier’s customer experience, operational efficiency, regulatory compliance and business agility.

DCSA is a nonprofit, independent organisation established in 2019 by several of the largest container shipping companies. Led by CEO Thomas Bagge, we are a growing team of professionals with backgrounds in the shipping and technology industries.
