CAIM has a wide range of “ready-in-stock” paper publications from various International Institutional suppliers.

They includes worldwide coverage of British Admiralty Publications:

Sailing Directions

• Distance Tables
• Admiralty Astronomical Almanacs
• IMO publications (conventions,        recommendations, codes, etc.)

CAIM is the Sole Appointed Agent for all R.I.N.A. Publications.

Top service for management of Admiralty Publications is the ‘CAIM Binder Service’. This system allows the mariners to reduce the burden of work that the manual correction of the Admiralty List of Lights and List of Radio Signals brings. The service supplies weekly replacement pages for the publications that are initially supplied in binder format. The replacement pages are supplied as brand-new corrected pages already perforated to fit into the binder.



Technical Publications

CAIM has the most comprehensive range of specialized marine training, reference and regulatory materials, providing the finest books and publications to the shipping industry. CAIM is appointed as official distributor for all standard publications from the most renowned publishers:



Initial Supply

CAIM can provide your new built with a tailored library of nautical charts and publications to ensure that your vessel is in full compliance for inspection purposes.

Based on the following information:

• Ship Type
• Flag State
• Company Safety Management Procedures as required by ISM
• Trading routes

We provide the new built vessel with the initial stock of up-to-date supply along with a customized correction log, presented in our binder format for monitoring of new editions and ISM compliance.

Transit Folios

CAIM can offer for a number of new buildings a separate transit folio which can be used by the vessel to transit from the shipyard to its assigned trading area. The same transit folio will be maintained until required by subsequent units.

Electronic Charts and Digital Publications

Our digital department of skilled professionals can support you 24/7 in the right choice of electronic charts to accompany the crew toward the e-Navigation era by safely reducing paper charts. Along with it we also supply and manage digital publications produced by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office and the International Maritime Organization.
