The Ship Operations Cooperative Program (SOCP) is a 501(c)6 nonprofit and nonpartisan member-driven organization of industry leaders to promote and improve the maritime industry through collaboration, facilitation, recommendation, and innovation. We are not a lobbying organization. Our members are the primary maritime stakeholders that include owning and operating companies, labor, training and educational professionals, mariners, regulatory, government and non-government organizations.
