Port & Liner Agency: Attending to vessels throughout the UK

Our Agency Department attends to around 350 vessels a year carrying products from mainland Europe, North Atlantic, US Gulf, Scandinavia, Baltic, Russia, the Far East and many other parts of the world. Vessels generally range from 1,500 to 45,000 DWT and are both conventional and specialist carriers. All types of vessel and cargo are handled but we specialise in forest products, steel, bulk cargoes, project cargoes, explosives (containers & break bulk), heavy-lift cargoes, car carriers, cruise vessels and containers with our regular liner services.

We have offices in London, Tilbury, Liverpool, Medway, Hull and Felixstowe and a network of local-agents in over 30 other UK ports to offer a complete nationwide service. Agency requirements can be handled directly by a local office or co-ordinated through our operations centre in Tilbury for centralised administration and accounting.

We were amongst the first to become FONASBA Quality Approved and are corporate members of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, BIMCO, The Baltic Exchange, FTA and BIFA and locally committee members of the London River Users Association and Port Security Council to ensure principals are represented at every level.

All other services of the Gee Group including Chartering, Freight Forwarding, Road Haulage, Import & Export, Airfreight and Project Handling can be arranged in-house to provide customers with a reliable and genuine end to end service.

Vessel & Cargo Chartering: Fixing vessels and cargoes World-Wide

Chartering has been a fundamental activity of the Gee Group since the very beginning over 123 years ago. We were founder members of BIMCO and amongst the earliest members of The Baltic Exchange and we continue to work closely with these organisations today.

Our highly experienced brokers and operations staff based in London and Tilbury cover all the main dry bulk routes and vessel sizes and regularly fix business with leading clients, trading houses and ship-owners. To complement our business and to provide clients with a truly personal service we offer value added in-house services including post fixture work, freight analysis and project consultancy. We also offer a sale & purchase service and an arbitration service for shipping related charter party or financial disputes.

We also specialise in niche areas of freight market activity including acting as a main Panel Broker for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), exclusive brokers for regular shipments of aggregates, clay, steel and other short sea cargoes and a very active involvement with the forest products industry, especially plywood & timber products from China and the Far East.

Our size range capability is for any size of cargo or ship from 1,000 deadweight up to full Panamax (about 75,000 dwt)
