Shipping Agency and Cargo Transhipment

Welcome to Hansway International‘s Shipping Agency Services. We are your trusted partner in the maritime industry, dedicated to ensuring that ships visiting our port of operation receive comprehensive and timely services. Our commitment is to facilitate seamless port calls and support the efficient movement of goods and vessels. The Shipping Agency is fully responsible and obliged to ensure that ships visiting its port of operation are served and provided with all goods and services required by the ship in a timely manner.

There are several popular shipping agencies in Singapore, such as  Hansway International. These shipping agencies offer a wide range of services, including freight forwarding, customs clearance, cargo handling, and shipping agency services.  Prior to the arrival of the ship to a port, the shipping agency will receive a nomination (election) from the ship’s owner/charterer or a future port call. After the nomination is received, the shipping agency begins to prepare for the ship’s visit.
