Welcome to Chartwell Shipping Ltd

The company was established in 1972 by its founder Rodney Morgan, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, (F.IC.S.) to service the ocean export & import industries in general, and the north American industries in particular.

Because of his specialised background in shipbroking & chartering, both in north America & Europe, and having already 20 years of experience in the marine industry, it was a natural extension to continue in this specialised field.

Therefore, with the support of existing & new blue chip clientele, together with a qualified & very conscious service orientated staff, in 1972, he simply continued his 20 years of experience of servicing industries in getting their product to world wide markets.

In 1990 the company inaugurated a container division, principally to offer our industrial clients an alternative service to that of bulk.

This applied especially to the forestry industry, in which Chartwell specialises, because this industry easily adapted itself to switching from bulk to containers and vice versa, depending on the shipment size.

In summary, irrespective of Chartwell’s link, in the high-profile transportation industry chain, the keyword is service, which has been one of the reasons for its longevity in a very competitive industry.
