Welcome to the Website of The National Association of Marine Services (NAMS).  Just to be clear, we are not affiliated with the Marine Corps.  We are an association of businesses that resupply ocean going vessels when they come to ports in the United States.  Our members are basically distributors who buy, warehouse and deliver repair parts, replacement parts, foods stuffs and amenities for the crew and any special order items that the ship might need.
