Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Australia New Zealand Eastern Shipping Conference (ANZESC) was established after the second world war to deal with the
trading routes north and southbound between Australia and New Zealand on the one hand, and Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and the Philippines on the other.
ANZESC constitutes an Association of Liner Shipowners operating in the same trade, who agree to abide by regulations to the mutual benefit of shippers and themselves, and to quote the same rates of freight
In December 1967 the Australia Northbound Shipping Conference (ANSCON) was set up, separately from the parent conference ANZESC. ANZESC has its headquarters in Tokyo, whereas ANSCON has its headquarters in Sydney. A further division was made at a principals meeting in March 1973 when the Australia East Asia Sections (AEAS) were established as autonomous bodies within ANZESC and ANSCON, dealing specifically with the northbound and southbound trade with East Asia as opposed to Japan.
