We are delighted to announce that Dan Shipping and Chartering has been awarded the Bulk Ships Agent Award at the International Bulk Journal (IBJ) Awards 2018. The IBJ Awards recognise achievements by individuals and organisations in the Maritime Bulk Industry and shine a spotlight on those delivering service excellence for their customers.
Shortlisted for the third year running, DAN Shipping was up against five other bulk ships agents in the UK, Poland and the US and is delighted to be named the winner in this hotly contested category. Entries to the IBJ Awards are judged by senior industry leaders, working in separate panels to identify the enterprising companies that are truly outstanding and deserve recognition. This year judges were particularly interested in ships agents that demonstrated their understanding of the specialist needs of bulk ships and their operators, the unique requirements for local knowledge and how they tailor their service to meet individual bulk customer needs.
Collecting the award for Dan Shipping at the prestigious event in Ghent, Steve Pullen, Managing Director, commented, ”We are delighted to be named Best Bulk Ships Agent 2018 at the highly contested IBJ Awards. To be named Best Bulk Ships Agent amongst worldwide competitors is a fantastic achievement and the whole team are ecstatic. We really do go the extra mile for our customers, and it’s fantastic for this commitment to be recognised.”
Commenting on the winning Bulk Ships Agent, the judges added, “Dan Shipping and Chartering were the agency that excelled in all areas and demonstrated a commitment to high service standards, professionalism and local knowledge to meet the unique requirements of its customers.”
Dan Shipping and Chartering is a subsidiary of the John Good Group, one of the UK’s longest established family businesses and one of the London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ 2015.
