Shipping Services

We assist our clients to ensure their vessels move into and out of the port as efficiently as possible without delays. Our ships agency team offer a full range of services, see our comprehensive list below.


Crew changes, transfers and repatriation

To ensure crew are cared for, we can organise their travel and accommodation, including taxis and trains to and from the dockside.

We can also help the crew to complete their immigration formalities. Once the crew have completed their employment, we can also arrange for them to be repatriated to their port of registry or an agreed location.

Organising pilots and mooring personnel

We have long-standing relationships with the local port authorities, including ABP. This means we can source the correct pilot or tugs to enable safe and compliant birthing at a time that suits you. 

Upon request, we can supply fresh water and high-quality provisions, and refresh your ships’ stores, as well as the provision of fresh, dry, and frozen items.

Port and local facilities updates

We can help record and submit vessel arrival reports with customs, and monitor discharge with ships and terminals, providing updates as required.

We can produce vessel clearance documentation and provide updates on birthing availability in the port

Fuel distribution and bunkering services

Trusted by some of the world’s leading shipping companies, our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This means we are always ready to provide you with a fuel distribution and bunkering solutions to meet your requirements.

"Over the past few years our relationship with Rix Shipping has grown, due largely to their friendly and flexible approach to us as a customer"
