Title: HIDE SHIPPERS AND AGENTS ASSOCIATION

Extent: 5 production units.
Name of creator(s): Hide Shippers and Agents Association
The Hide Shippers and Agents Association was formed in 1925 to represent importers of hides, and their agents in the United Kingdom, who were dissatisfied with existing methods of arbitration employed by the trade. They based the form of their association upon the associations formed by the oil, tallow and grain trades, and, in addition to appointing a panel of arbitrators to hear disputes, introduced uniform printed contracts and promoted the general interests of their trade. Originally based at 84 Leadenhall Street, the association subsequently moved to 5/7 Houndsditch (1959) and Baltic Exchange Chambers, 24 St. Mary Axe (1968).
