Liner Agency and NVOCC Services

As an independent, we have for many years offered quality services facilitating the efficient and effective movement of goods between the United Kingdom, the Caribbean and the Middle East. As specialists on these routes, we are able to assist with all customs and other regulatory matters that have to be fulfilled at point of origin and final destination. In this regard, we provide assurance to both the shipper and consignee that there are no delays or risk to goods being shipped.

Most importantly, our overseas partners on these routes have been working with us for a considerable period of time, ensuring quality services whilst maintaining competitive rates.

CARIBBEAN SERVICES

With a population of approximately 40 million in the Caribbean and around 1 million Caribbeans living in the UK, the trade between the United Kingdom and the Caribbean is continuously growing. Whether shipping goods to Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts, Antigua, Guyana or Suriname we provide assurance to the shipper and consignee that there are no delays or interruption to services whilst always limiting risk to product.

MIDDLE EAST SERVICES

Strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, the Middle East constitutes not only a significant trading partner with the United Kingdom, but also a hub for international trade. The United Arab Emirates is the United Kingdom’s largest export market in the region, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, incorporating machinery, consumer brands, equipment, financial services and energy. The United Kingdom has also become the second-largest investor in the Middle East in terms of projects, and third largest in terms of amount invested. Total exports to the region have now exceeded £18bn.

With specialist staff, experience and knowledge of this trade route, WM Shipping Ltd is well placed to facilitate trade to Countries throughout the Gulf including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria, Qatar, Israel, Oman and Bahrain.

WEST AFRICAN SERVICES

With more than a billion people, 54 countries, the African continent is larger than the USA, Europe, China and India combined. For this reason, Africa has become a focal point of global interest for manufacturers as they look for opportunities in this growth zone. Ghana is considered to be one of the major gateways to West Africa and is the second largest economy in West Africa. In 2015 WM Shipping Ltd opened its own office in Tema to facilitate the sometimes complex import customs, transport and bonded warehousing legislation. Since its creation, the implementation of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) protocol on trade has greatly enhanced intra-regional trade as well as Ghana’s status as an economic force in the sub-region.

Our office offers all services as a ‘neutral’ including sales functions, delivery orders/invoicing and vessel agency. Bordered by Cote d’Ivoire in the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east and the Gulf of Guinea to the south, our office is well situated to alleviate ‘traditional challenges’ to reliable shipping to these regions.
