Ship Agency

Capes provides a full range of ship agency and representation services, with a primary focus of full cargo agency attendance. We represent foreign buyers and charterers, ship owners and operators, vessel management companies, exporters and importers, and other parties contracted to a ship.

We have well established and independent working relationships with all terminals, stevedores, government agencies, and waterfront vendors in the ports we serve. This enables us to turn ships around quickly and efficiently.
