Moran Shipping Agencies is proudly celebrating 80 years of steamship agency excellence in 2017. From our humble beginnings in Providence, Rhode Island in 1937, to becoming the largest independent steamship agency in North America today, we could not have achieved this without the support of our loyal and valued clients, our superb vendors and our dedicated employees who continually strive to give their best each and every day. To all those who have contributed to our success, you have our sincere gratitude.

Moran has proven experience in the area of Hub Management, marine expertise, international vessel finance and accounting, and innovative information technology solutions. Our strength is our people...Moran boasts extremely low employee turnover as our Managers average over 20 years agency experience with the Company. This dedicated team represents a diverse and committed skill base, which includes Captains, Mariners, former and active Coast Guard, ship operators, charterers, brokers, inspectors, as well as vetting and maritime security experts.

Most importantly throughout our 80 years, however, is the partnership formed with each principal during each vessel call and Moran Shipping Agencies’ unwavering commitment to providing the highest standard of agency service and care. Read More...
