Established in 2015 after a series of mergers and name changes and based in Port Melbourne Victoria, Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) is a commercial association of maritime businesses, primarily those operating maritime assets or facilities from Australia. MIAL is uniquely positioned to provide dedicated maritime expertise and advice, and is driven to promote a sustainable, vibrant and competitive Australian maritime industry and to expand the Australian maritime cluster.

Maritime Industry Australia Limited has existed in various guises for over 115 years, with its genesis as the Australasian Steamship Owners Federation (ASOF) formed in 1899, closely followed by industrial body, the Commonwealth Steamship Owners Association (CSOA). In 1986 ASOF became the Australian National Maritime Association (ANMA) and CSOA merged to become the Australian Shipowners Industrial Association (ASIA). During the 1990’s ANMA became the Australian Shipowners Association (ASA) which soon absorbed the functions of ASIA.

In early 2015 Australian Shipowners Association (ASA) became Maritime Industry Australia Limited. MIAL conduct various events and training programs for its members and non-members around Australia.
