With roughly 250 million gross tons or some 20 per cent of the world’s merchant fleet on register, ClassNK is one of the world’s largest classification societies in terms of gross tonnage under class. ClassNK is a global organisation with a network of over 130 exclusive surveyor offices around the world.
