“DAN Shipping & Chartering Limited has been a valuable agency partner for our company. We rely on our Agency network for value-added solutions, and we’ve found them to be fair, courteous and above all, professional in every respect.”

“DAN Shipping is heavily involved within the four ports on the Humber and provides a first-class port agency service. They ensure constant and right-time information ensuring the operation runs as smoothly as possible. They are personal and flexible to achieve the common goal of a first-class service. All staff at DAN Shipping are knowledgeable and approachable and are always willing to assist, which is clear to see throughout the management structure and I would highly recommend their services.”

“Hargreaves (UK) Services highly recommend DAN Shipping for the services provided. We have used DAN Shipping for over 15 years without any complaints in any aspect of our required activities.

Our requirements range from the covering of both the loading and unloading of coasters in the West of Scotland and North of England, to larger vessels in and around Redcar and the Humber Ports,  the team at DAN are always timely in response, with excellent communication flow whilst covering all aspects as advised and required in the handling of carbon cargoes.

The widening services now provided, including Customs clearance and guidance on form filling, provides further strength in depth to the already high-level service of stevedoring. Dan Shipping is always competitive in providing a fair price for top-notch service.”

“When I joined Knauf as the Procurement Manager I had no experience in shipping and all the associated activities.

Dan Shipping gave me first-rate advice, helping me to understand the terms and processes involved. They continue to give sound advice and insights whilst providing support to me, our business and the ships where they act as the Agent.

The Dan Shipping team are a lovely bunch of experts, efficiently handling our shipping needs, and managing questions and changes with great professionalism as well as a smile.

The level of communication is prompt and exactly what we need with good up-front information and ongoing updates while vessels are in port. 

I genuinely feel that Dan Shipping are a great business partner and look forward to our continuing relationship.”
