Setting a new standard for operational excellence

The Dry Bulk Centre of Excellence (DBCE) is an independent not-for-profit industry organisation dedicated to raising standards and best practices in dry shipping through the implementation of the DryBMS framework.

DBCE was jointly founded by INTERCARGO and RightShip, with input from stakeholders across the dry bulk sector and beyond but will operate as an entirely separate entity to its two founding organisations.

DBCE’s purpose is to reduce operational incidents, improve operational standards and drive industry best practices in the dry shipping sector.

DryBMS provides a framework for evaluation and self-assessment of maritime excellence, with clear standards and guidelines across four categories: Performance, People, Plant and Process.
