The Northern India Steamer Agents Association or NISAA, as we are more commonly known, was formed on the 30th of December 1985. Containerized EXIM Trade was on the rise and with the growth in traffic and development of new Inland Container Depots (ICD's), associated problems were being faced by the Industry.

It was against this backdrop that a Group of Agents of some of the main container shipping Lines felt the need of an association who could address their problems with the various Agencies, Service providers, Vendors and Government Authorities.

NISAA's main objective is to work closely with the various authorities involved in the EXIM Trade – Ministry of Shipping, Container Train Operators, Customs, CFS/ ICDs and various Terminals, for the betterment of the EXIM traffic to and from the Northern India ICD's, which effects various Member Lines and the Trade in general.
