Shipping News Feature

UK – Things are moving fast for bulk freight and project cargo specialist DAN Shipping & Chartering, the independent ships agent which through its port services handles both cargo and administrative duties. Having recently moved to a new head office in East Yorkshire the company has now expanded South West and last month opened its own Bristol office.

The new operation extends DAN Shipping’s port coverage to include Avonmouth, Portbury, Newport and Cardiff which nicely complements its ‘round the coast’ services activities in Hull, Immingham, Grimsby, Tyne, Blyth, Sunderland, Hunterston and Ayr. DAN’s client list now means it supplies a range of high quality port agency services nationwide to a wide range of blue chip customers. DAN started life as a specialist grain charterer but rapidly expanded into other maritime related areas.

The Bristol office and its South West service centre is situated in St. Andrews House, Avonmouth, where it will be headed up by Alan Stenner, a highly regarded and well respected figure in the industry who brings with him over 40 years of experience in the port agency sector. Alan is charged with developing the business in Avonmouth and Portbury as well as in key ports in South Wales.
