Pacmar Shipping’s take-charge approach connects continents
- Company’s tailored solutions, resourced and reinvented for each ship owner and manager, boost its reputation as a skilful agent and partner
Focused on ship chartering, ship agency and ship supply services that add value to clients, Pacmar Shipping with its head office in Singapore is scaling up operations elsewhere in Asia and in Europe including Turkey.
“We have started ship agency and chartering services so that our clients in the Far East can take advantage of our positions and expertise,” says Captain Sitki Kok, managing director.
The move reinforces Pacmar’s capabilities to bridge different continents for global clients. Its tailored solutions, resourced and reinvented for each ship owner and manager, boost its reputation as a skilful agent and partner. Since 1993, the ship agency’s client roster has been growing steadily with returning clients and their referrals.
Today, besides its other valuable appointments, Pacmar is a panel agent for the high court’s registrar, concurrently the Sheriff of Singapore, for ships that require specialised assistance.
Pacmar also has a strong track record in fulfilling the complex requirements of global companies. Through the years, it has become the reliable ship chartering partner of world-leading players such as Japan’s Mitsui, Marubeni and Mitsubishi, South Korea’s Samsung and Daewoo, China’s COSCO SHIPPING Lines, Saudi Arabia’s SABIC, India’s Tata Group and Turkish industrial conglomerate Diler Holding.
“Ship chartering is a dedicated business where professional expertise really counts,” Kok says. “Our people have the depth of seafaring and trade experience required to afford our clients peace of mind in their home countries, knowing that we take care of everything.”
Familiar with the operational nuances at the Singapore port, Pacmar has steadily grown its ship supply business while maintaining in-house ship management services with sister company Pac Ship. The company welcomes partnerships in Asia that would promote industry best practices.
“Clients come back to us because we provide the solutions that are most beneficial to them,” Kok says. “We are interested in cooperative partnerships with experienced industry players that share the same values and mentality.”
